Issue 1

We made it! Our October launch is secure!

It’s been a crazy few months here at MZHQ. Launching an ezine is very, very different from launching a podcast, and our team has been sweating bullets trying to make sure the i’s are dotted, etc. We are still getting the issue approved on our various methods of distribution, so we appreciate your patience!

We are so proud of issue 1, including our Frank Wu original cover. Coming this week, as we are still working on our website, we’ll be bringing you some of the content from the zine, for free. If you want all the awesome content we offer, you can subscribe to the magazine at Weightless Books, or buy individual issues for a mere $2.99 at the following locations:
