Graffiti Zines Near You

Recommended Posts

I've been noticing a big resurgence in the DIY zine production in the bay area these days. There's a few stores here and there carrying these little zine gems that are great for a reading on the toilet, trading with someone for their uneaten sandwich half or keeping in your glovebox when your significant other is taking their sweet ass time inside the conveneicne store.


Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have more than a few good ones floating around.


1. Spider Ghost (variable title per issue)- it's a fantastic black and white zine of bay area graffiti, random tomfoolery and one issue shows a skinhead about 2 seconds away from getting knocked the fuck out by three guys. There's also some really good writing thrown in now and again that actually makes me stop and go "wait, what? Whooooaaaaa. " It reminds me of LifeSucksDie with integrity and half the budget. The guy gets extra cool points for using his work copier to put it together.


2. Color of Shadow - just copped the "street art issue". Full color cover and centerold. Black and white printed on some high quality paper. A bit pricey for a zine ($3) but worth the cost. lot's to look at, no articles....just complete visual stimulation. Very nice. Would like to see an issue dedicated to throwies (if they havne;t done one already i have missed)



SO yeah, list the zines being put out in your area....what are people doing?

Spider ghost is pretty sick...

Theres a small time zine out where I live it's called "tag fags" or something of that sort. It's a once a month magazine, and you can only find it at graff stores.

Anubis on haight street carries a pretty good selection. It's where I get my issues of Spider Ghost. They used to give'em out for free but I think they're charging now. Weaksauce.
