What is a Zine?
A zine is an amateur, limited (very few copies) publication of art. Zines can cover any topic from personal experiences to pop culture. They can be educational, humorous, radical, and anything inbetween. They are usually printed cheaply in a DIY-fashion and often have a scrapbook-like appearance. Zines usuallty cover themes or ideas the artist is passionate about and are a means of spreading/sharing that passion to like-minded people.
What is a Fanzine?
A fanzine is an amateur publication based on an existing property. Fanzines come in all shapes and sizes but they are usually in an anthology format, collecting multiple works of art, comics, or writings. Fanzines can have one or multiple contributors, can be digital or print, and be for charity or for profit. You are most likely to find fanzines online or at a convention. They may also be called a "fanbook", a "fancomic", an "anthology", or just a "zine".
