We’re sad to announce that Zine Machine #6 is postponed for another year. Despite our high hopes and crossed fingers, it looks like the Covid Monster isn’t done with us yet.
We’ve got the Durham Armory reserved for October 16, 2022. Here’s hoping the world will be feeling better by then and Zine Machine can celebrate its triumphant return!
Till the, stay safe & keep on zine-ing!
These have been some damn difficult days. We hope you’re hanging in there.
We’ve decided to postpone Zine Machine #6 till October of 2021. Please keep an eye peeled for more info & updates in the months ahead.
Thanks to EVERYONE for making ZM5 the best one yet! Please stay tuned for ZM6, coming in October 2020.

3:30PM – RYAN HOLMBERG – Only Idiots Make Good Manga Translators
Is manga difficult to translate? Ryan knows the answer & it might surprise you! Exploring the tricks of the trade, scholar Ryan Holmberg chats about what he’s learned after translating nearly two dozen manga
