An Explanation
(let me take you by the hand)

The ACME Company was everything to everyone around it. As fundamental as water to our survival, there were utterly no revolutionaries against the peculiar establishment. After all, a human would not get particularly far if they eschewed fluids; so the same applied to Petey, Georgie and the rest of their charming ilkโ€™s reliance on ACME.

ACME provided all inhabitants with their wishes.…   [continue reading]

Issue #2: Breath: FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Issue #2: Breath is available to order through our store or, alternatively, as a reward to Patreon supporters.

We’re now preparing to post out copies of Issue #2: Breath! If you haven’t yet ordered a copy, you can do so by visiting our store or brand new Patreon page. We’ve worked hard to make this zine worth the money, by filling it with as much writing, art and photography as we could source. In the end, we’ve more than doubled the page count of our debut issue.

We’re immensely proud of the contributors who have given this project life.…   [continue reading]

Since posts have definitely been slower here this year, I feel it’s only fair that we show why. We stated our heavier concentration onย Issue #2: Breathย in this previous post. But,ย with so much going on in the background, it’s about time we gave an update.

Several contributions have already come in, and received full page formatsย from Benjamin and I. Neither of us can believe the quality of submissions this time around, and we’ve tried to live up to that with our designs. Last week, we worked on a three-page spread exploring the art of Katrine Claassens.…   [continue reading]

An Introduction
(welcome to the wonderful world of entertainment)

Petey stood perspiring, rubbing his porky and ill-defined pinkies together in angst, fearful but energized. Letโ€™s proceed to paint this picture with all the full wonder and respect it commands, for the room in which Petey shook โ€“ not entirely out of disturbance, but more anticipation โ€“ was so unlike any enclosed space you have ever entered. The only thing known to the average human, like you or I, that could even approach the decoration, architecture or general ambience of that cavernous chamber is what hallucinogenic drug users may find in an un-enclosed clearing.…   [continue reading]
