GrousyGirl created The End of Days Gazette as a Halloweenish zine slash faux newspaper. Super cheeky and razor sharp wit! As we read stories about monsters and zombies taking over, we are hit with references and direct quotes by Trump taken out of context. Perfect if you like absurd, dark humor.
GrousyGirl’s zine, Miss Mead’s Catalogue of Peculiar Potions, is also a coloring book and journal.
We had an idea at a group meeting about doing a zine about Kansas City because we’re going to the Virtual Kansas City Zine Convention … albeit only one of us has been there, so we did a group zine on KCMO.
We’re really excited to table at the virtual KC Zine Con this year!

This time Rebel looks at Cam’s travels abroad, namely her 2018 trip to Berlin, Germany.

In this issue, Cujo talks about life on the Reservation, also a brief trip to the Czech Republic in the early 2000’s.
