New Zine Acquisitions

This past weekend I attended the Portland Zine Symposium, which was a whirlwind of feminism, anarchism, anti-copyright, and comics about butts. I met lots of creative DIY folks and picked up quite a few zines to add to the McNabb Archives collections.


14 zines and 1 sticker spread out on a table.

Zine Haul

  • “Secret Identity” by Trebro
  • “Jews & Zines” and “Queer Theory” (not pictured) by Cheyenne
  • “Rad(ical) Faggotism” by jaysip
  • “Haunted by Dragons” and “Mystery Airships of the 19th Century” by Shawn P. Wilbur
  • “Terror of the Stick Men of Mt. St. Helens” and a fantastic drawing of Bigfoot (not pictured) by Kris Lyon
  • and a “Fuck Gender Binaries” sticker by Sullivan

I’m excited to strengthen the queer, bigfoot, paranormal, and women’s narratives areas of the Archives. I spoke with several of the creators and got release forms for digitization, and emailed others for permission to digitize. I’ll be accessioning these soon so anyone can see them in person. Digitization will happen slower and with permission.
