Graphia Whatcha Mean, Whats a Zine?

A zine is a handmade magazine or mini-comic about anything you can imagine: favorite bands, personal stories, subcultures, or collections. They contain diary entries, rants, interviews, and stories. They can be by one person or many, found ...in stores, traded at comic conventions, exchanged with friends, or given away for free. Zines are not a new idea: they?ve been around for years under various names (chapbooks, flyers, pamphlets). People with independent ideas have been getting their word out since before there were printing presses. This book is for anyone who wants to create their own zine. It?s for learning tips and tricks from contributors who have been at the fore front of the zine movement. It?s for getting inspired to put thoughts and ideas down on paper. It?s for learning how to design and print your own zine so you can put it in others? hands. Whatcha Mean, What?s a Zine? is for anyone who has something to say.

From the perspective of the young adult he was then, Francisco Jiménez describes the challenges he faced in his efforts to continu...e his education. During his college years, the very family solidarity that allowed Francisco to survive as a child is tested. Not only must he leave his family behind when he goes to Santa Clara University, but while Francisco is there, his father abandons the family and returns to Mexico. This is the story of how Francisco coped with poverty, with his guilt over leaving his family financially strapped, with his self-doubt about succeeding academically, and with separation. Once again his telling is honest, true, and inspiring.
