The Phantom starring Billy Zine

after reading about zines in another thread and then how terrible all social media is on another, i have decided to move forward with a zine. probably either 16 or 32 pages, something i can fold up and saddle stitch by hand easily.

open to suggestions for content, names, colors, size, substrate, etc.

If you need opinionated articles that may or may not be factually correct, idiotic stories from bike people over the age of 40, or photos that may or may not be good OR bike related, this is the place

Billy Zane played John Justice Wheeler in season 2 of Twin Peaks, which is kind of a Grantish name, but with all of the pizzazz removed.

I’d love to see a Raygun-magazine level of weirdness, like setting an entire article in Zapf Dingbats, or laying it out after you cut yourself working on your bike and using the blood drops as a compositional element

i do think it needs to be cryptic and weird. lots of it might not even be bike-related. even the bike-related stuff wont really be bike-related.

I think looking at that everyday to find the worst would be bad for your mental health.
