THERE FOR US

This is a great little comic; it's a positive account of both authors' experiences at Planned Parenthood. Each author wrote and illustrated their own stories, and they're different from one another but no less powerful -- their drawing styles are well-matched and both stories are compelling. It's important to show a diversity of perspective, especially in support of women's experiences, because Planned Parenthood is such an important resource to so many people. Highly recommended. (Note: there is a way to read it online without buying the comic, but if you're able to buy the comic I recommend doing so.)
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.
