Issue #2 is the comedy issue so it’s got has got comedians talking about their craft, people talking about what comedy means to them, as well as queers just bein’ plain darn funny and producing fabulous artwork.
For the first issue, we asked our friends to help us out with submissions and it was amazing. This issue, we opened up a general submissions call and we got some AMAZING stuff from people we haven’t met!!! and now we get to show it all off.

Scoff is a zine about food! Put together by some peeps at RMIT, it’s got heaps of cute comics inside.
You can read it for free here.
And I’ve got a comic in there! (I am now officially, a published ~*~*CoMiCeRRrr, which I believe is the technical term.) Hommus Wife is my contribution, written because one of my friends just really likes hommus.
(Also, timecowboy‘s got a comic in there and he is one of my fav tumblr comic people, so it’s super exciting being in something with him!)
