Always and Forever: A Zine About Friendship by Dig Deep

I had the honor of putting together this comp zine, which — in my honest (& biased) opinion — totally rules. It’s filled with stories & comics about friendships lost, about the difficulties of making new friends as an adult, about creating solid friendships, about friends as intentional community, and so much more. Every one of them is brilliant. Get stoked on this killer lineup of contributors:

  • Brittany Maksimovic (Playing Victim)
  • Caitlin Constantine (All I Want is Everything)
  • Celia C. Pérez (I Dreamed i Was Assertive)
  • Heather (Dig Deep)
  • Jamie Varriale Vélez (Sinvergüenza)
  • JC (Tributaries)
  • Jen T (Tongueswell)
  • Jenna Brager (The Sinew That Shrinks)
  • K (Lake Effect)
  • LB (Truckface)
  • Leslie Perrine (Sometimes the Sky Explodes)
  • Lily Pepper (PALS: The Radical Possibilities of Friendship)
  • Sara Bear (Grin & Bear It)
  • Sarah McCarry (Glossolalia)
  • With a cover designed by Marissa Falco (Miss Sequential)!

Half sized (5.5″ x 8.5″), 52 pages. Published in March of 2014.
