obviously, as a first time zine-maker, i'm curious (and a little anxious/scared) about other people's feedback.
here i'll post reviews other people make of my zine, and also feedback i get through emails and messages from other readers.
first things first, and today i got my first review, as my little zine arrived at a fellow countryman's mailbox, in Coimbra (in Portugal). Ogata Tetsuo runs a blog called UzineFanzine, where he reviews zines that he gets from all over the world. here's the review he wrote of Ladybug #1 (written in Portuguese):
«Responsável pela Invicta Distro, Yvonne decidiu também por mão-à-obra e criar o seu primeiro fanzine. Ladybug #1 é um fanzine (em modo perzine) criado em 24h e à moda antiga: máquina de escrever, papel, tesoura e cola.
O resultado é um conjunto de textos bem escritos na língua de Sua Majestade que falam de histórias de infância, de máquinas de escrever e de insectos.
Que venha rapidamente o próximo número...»

«Owner of Invicta Distro, Yvonne also decided to get her hands to work and create her first fanzine. Ladybug # 1 is a fanzine (perzine mode) created in 24-hours and in the old-fashion way: typewriter, paper, scissors and glue.
The result is a set of texts and writings in the language of Her Majesty that tell stories of childhood, typewriters and insects. May the next number come soon ...»
