Is it ironic that a zine made about sci-fi was made “with only an old metal typewriter and a dozen black ink pens”? No, it’s not. Get yourself a copy to understand why. Though it’s a bit on the short side, there’s no filler. Each page is either all text or art, and I like that. The column I found most interesting focuses on a subject I’ve found myself discussing with my friends recently, which is that we were the last “real” generation—at least, almost. I didn’t have a computer or cell phone until I was nineteen, and my computer had no internet. The column I just mentioned discusses “the influence of technology on human behavior and relationships.” Pretty deep stuff, with Star Trek and Star Wars thrown in for good measure.
