The AVZL was featured in This Magazine

Please note on the cover there is a tag line which claims information about HALIFAX’s new zine library. But Halifax has the Anchor Zine Archive. We are located in the picturesque Annapolis Valley!

The Annapolis Valley Zine Library recently supported Retrofit Comics toward their 2013 subscription. The return of the alt-comic format is worthy of support, especially since there are fewer and fewer places to distribute them. The January and February offerings showed up together. By Sam Alden and publisher and artist Box Brown. More to come. Check out their list for yourself.http://retrofitcomics.com/

Donation: two mini comics by andyhoodhood! Thanks Andy!

Donations are coming in! Recently the library received This Insane Life, Mad Pride Hamilton's occasional zine. From the masthead: “This Insane Life is a zine written and created entirely by people who suffer from and /or experience mental illness and saneism, identify as mad, insane, crazy, nuts, or neurologically atypical, are service users and refusers.”

Gaspereau Press author Dana Mills pays a visit to the AVZL.Here he is checking out the suitcase. This is what I take to schools when I give presentations. How do collections of zines become a book? Also note the first ever Conundrum book up front, everything I know about love I learned from taxidermy by Catherine Kidd. Missing from this photo is the cassette that came with it. Remember cassettes?
