Dogbreath 28 and Zarjaz 20 out now!

I don’t mention these magazines much at all and I should. Two amazingly good Fanzines, both are anthologies.

To the best of my knowledge Dogbreath is the longest running current comic fanzine in the UK. It is certainly the longest running 2000AD Fanzine. Dedicated to Strontium Dog it features stories about Jonny Alpha and other characters from his world.

Zarjaz is dedicated to 2000AD in general so has a wider mix of stories. Obviously not every character from 2000Ad gets in to the pages of Zarjaz but most of the fan favourites have been included.

Warning – there is a little self-publisity in this article as I am a contributor to Dogbreath 28.
