Q&A with Nathan Onasis

Nathan makes comics and pancakes.

When and why did you start making zines?

I made my first zine this year to explore the process. I like to draw and tell stories.

What is your favourite thing about zines?

They can be casually entertaining, or profound, or cryptic. They can be anything.

Do you have a favourite zine (aside from your own!)? What is it and why do you like it?

Cute by Jess Kitty Parker. I also like this zine by an unknown author about how sexy Jeff Goldblum is in Jurassic Park.
