Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

"Here's the new King-Cat! (IT'S A WEIRD ONE)" ends the introduction to #76, and he's not wrong.  The previous issue of King-Cat is all about Maisie, the author's late cat (it's really good and worth your time to track down), and this one is sort of back to the regular not-themed content; some drawings and some retellings, some travel and some snow; lots and lots of letter pages. As always, the layout is clean and crisp, and the line drawings are lovely. If for some reason you've missed King-Cat until now, it's well worth your time to start reading (and you can get subscriptions! more info is available through the address above.) There's also a King-Cat Top 40 in this issue, which is delightful. All in all, I'm always excited when these issues appear in my mailbox; it's worth your time to check it out. (And 76 issues is nothing to sneeze at either!)
