Factsheet 5 (zine that review zines)

  • 1982 – a zine that reviews zines, started by Mike Gunderloy
  • reviewed predominantly science fiction themed fanzines and independent publications already circulating by word of mouth
  • the late 1980s it was a thick newsprint magazine, published bimonthly with a circulation of 10,000

__

With the increase of zines, this zine was created to review other zines, I suppose this is good that people can get an overview but maybe it’s defying the zine culture in that zines are created out of personal interest so that it shouldn’t really have any criteria to be marked against. But the creator of Factsheet Five has the interest to review other zines in hsi zine.
