Get to Know San Anto's Zines

Posted By on Fri, Jun 10, 2016 at 4:15 PM

Zines are pretty much the most indie things on this planet. What makes them so special is that they are handcrafted and distributed (usually) by a single person.

You can almost feel the heart and soul poured into them, radiating like nuclear fallout. The best thing about zines is that there is one for almost anything. For whatever you’re interested in, there’s a good chance that there is a local zine out there to tell you all about whatever you’d like to know from beer to Hispanic history and art. So check out these zines and head to 1906 S. Flores on Saturday, June 11 for San Antonio Zine Night.
