Word to the wise for Arizona dwellers who love zines: there’s a new zine shop/distro in town! Wasted Ink Zine Distro (located at 2121 W. University Dr, Ste 110 Tempe, AZ 85281) opened last weekend. I went there on Sunday and was blown away by it: it’s a small space, and they’re only open a few days a week, but there’s nothing else like it in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa/Tempe sprawl.
Imagine it: a dedicated space to zines! And the variety they have is dizzying! Feminist zines, weird art comics about D&D Mimics, erotic horror, bad goth poetry, photography collections…. it’s a wide range of reading material. They also have a zine library with a lot of really interesting older titles in stock.
And shameless plug time: they’re now carrying my zine “Elephant Head“. So when you get a chance, grab some bucks, head down to WIZD and support local indie publishing. Take some worthy zines home with you… and if one of mine ends up in your take-home pile, all the better. 🙂
