Just received a whole ton of copies of the latest issue (# 111) of Slingshot!, an anarchist newspaper based out of Berkeley that started up in 88’, and guess whose fanzine was reviewed at the end!? Yep you guessed it.. MINE! =) I was absolutely ecstatic!! This is the first published review of my fanzine and it was written by none other than the magnificent Robert Eggplant who is an amazing zinester, musician and activist. He is a master at what he does and a real inspiration to keep making zines and to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say about issue #3. <3 (thanks for the review and all of the copies man, you’re the best)
Muchacha #3 $1 muchachafanzine.tumblr.com A mermaid adorns the cover with an ocean of ideas inside. Like a coral reef, there’s several pages of busy action to fill the eyes with complex collages, essays on current events, quotes, lists of cool bands, inspired lyrics destroying American Idol, historical sketches of activists, and manifestos. There are a few hands in the works, but the guiding force is one person focused on feminism and her family’s roots with Mexico. She started this zine as an endeavor to help represent a new movement called Feminism Is Not Dead (F.I.N.D.), Riot Grrrl being a major influence. This is an ideal publication to absorb during long waits at the DMV, while train-hopping, or during a life of working for real political change.
