Little Lit, Big Heart

ABQ Zine Fest unfolds

You don’t need an agent to say you’re OK. You don’t require a publishing house to distribute your work. You can tell your stories, share your drawings and project your rants all over town, as easily as one, two, three. (Copy, fold, staple.) There is no one who can censor you, no genre that can hold you. This is the creative and hyper-DIY attitude of dozens of local zinesters—and counting—who are coming out of the woodwork to share their talents at the inaugural ABQ Zine Fest.

Back to the ’80s

A found skate zine compilation rolls into nostalgia

The Best of Skate Fate

One of the perks of being the Alibi’s circulation manager is navigating the stream of culture and humanity that regularly shows up in our distribution boxes and racks. I’m not talking about the relentless parade of flyers for art openings, shows and Brazilian waxing specials, but rather pocket knives, fancy glassware and—most prized—the literature. On a trip to the Laundromat on Princeton and Central, the Alibi rack yielded a crisp, virgin copy of The Best of Skate Fate, a 1981-1991 compilation of interviews, cartoons and weirdness from the skate zine by Garry Scott Davis (aka GSD).
