ZINEs, independently produced from cover to cover, have a long history in the West. During the 80's and 90's they were a go-to source for underground art and music, a little left of the mainstream. The rise of the Internet did these ZINEs no favors. Fast forward: it's 2018 and iconic Japanese magazines are opting to focus on their online counterparts.
