Whatcha mean, what's a zine?* A zine (pronounced ‘zeen’) is a homemade, self-published mini-magazine. Containing both text and image, either found or forged, a zine can be anything: a comic, a how-to guide, a rant, a diary entry, a list, a letter, a story, an interview, an article, even a piece of art. It can be personal or political, simple or complicated, silly or serious, private or shared. Anyone and everyone can make one-including you!
