Taking Over the World, One Zine At A Time

Two dozen artists set up their zines, comics, and graphic novels on tables at Pete’s Candy Store on Saturday, July 21, ready to bring the 4th Annual Pete’s Mini Zine Fest to life.

The turnout was large for what artists and co-organizers Andria Alefhi and Marguerite Dabaie call “a fest-in-a-bar.” Begun in July 2010, the Mini Zine Fest is an opportunity for “zinesters to sell their zines and books in an intimate, relaxed atmosphere” that also doubles as a chance to network over cold beers.

This year, the garden and front room were filled with books, buttons, stickers and more, many of them handmade, most of them self-published. The list of artists and comic or zine series included Alefhi’s “We’ll Never Have Paris,” Debaie’s “The Hookah Girl,” Darryl Ayo’s “Little Garden,” Elvis Bakaitis’ “Homos In Herstory,” Jenna Freedman’s “Lower East Side Librarian,” Katie Haegele’s “The La-La Theory,” John Jennison’s “The Crisis of Infinite Cells,” Sara Lindo’s “Wall Street Cat,” and Morgan Pielli’s “Indestructible Universe Quarterly.”
