I appreciate the kind words as well as synopses of my zines put better than I could. On top of that Nathan uses a delightful mosaic in the photos which makes them look great.
After reading some Asimov, I decided to make one of my short sci-fi stories into a 4 part comic booklet. The only problem was I didn’t know how to draw it. At some point I decided to make all of the art circular and get a bit abstract with it. The resultant comic contains photocopied maltesers in space, spirograph, paint splatters, sand through a telescope and of course one or two actual drawings.
My very short story inspired by Great Yarmouth’s now defunct Louis Tussauds (dubbed ‘the world’s worst waxworks’) has been published on Ric Journal.

The men sat alone in the cockpit. Nobody spoke for more than an hour but it could have been days. Besides, units of time measurement based on the Earth’s orbit seemed pointless to them now. The four men’s minds went separately to places over 240,000 miles away and the people they loved there.
West cried when he saw the Earth come into view. He wondered what his tears would do if his helmet wasn’t on. Without gravity he supposed they might just well up on his eyeballs and float away in front of him.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you possibly can fix if you happen to werent too busy searching for attention.
