Successful Zine Release Partyin’

Posted by Josh Jubinsky on October 9, 2010


Saturday’s Zine Release party was great!  Contributors to the zine got a personal copy, and other kids checked out copies of the new issue.   Everyone did a short autobiographical comic, and got to help paint some more covers of last month’s Zine Machine.  We had some new faces at the program, and they were pretty excited to hear about their comics being part of the library zine.

A few of the new issues are still available for checkout!  They are in the Main Library’s Children’s Department.  In the graphic section, right by That’s So Raven and Transformers.
