I'll admit to being late to certain things in life.
For instance, it wasn't until I got to college ('97) that I picked up my first zine, and then subsequently contributed to my then-new friend Aaron Retka's humble effort called Death's Car (Has California Plates).
It was at Toons (currently The Leechpit, if only a little while longer) that I grabbed it, if I recall correctly, and to be honest, I wouldn't know exactly where to go to pick one up today.
A good guess might be online, where I'm sure the even-more-cost-effective format appeals to the DIY-types who invest their time and talent on these small artists' books.
But good thing I don't have to guess since a friend recently clued me in to her and some of her pals' new local publication, Ragwater Monthly Magazine, currently hosted on Tumblr.
