    PFS 4 - Why the Internet Didn't Kill Zines

    Bruce and Melissa recap their experiences at DINK (The Denver Independent Comic & Art Expo) held in Denver on April 8 & 9, 2017.

    Bruce and Melissa then discuss an article from the New York Times Magazine “Why The Internet Didn't Kill Zines”. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/28/magazine/why-the-internet-didnt-kill-zines.html The Activist nature of zines, their permanence as objects vs. the virtual element, the relentless pace of social media, & the different reading experience of print vs. screen are explored as factors. Bruce waxes nostalgic for Angelfire and Geocities as spiritual successors of zines on the early web.
