Zine Showcase #23
Necronomicon #2 :: £1 + shipping
Necronomicon is a Yorkshire, UK based horror fanzine, a sincere love letter to the horror genre in love most of all with the films that have been forgotten about. Published every-so-monthly these black and white photocopied A5 zines are intensely nostalgic with a heavy dose of dark humour.

All You've Got To Do Is..
Weng Pixin created this zine for a Pikaland project and I received it direct from them as part of a zine selection so issues are scarce. Weng uses cartoons and zines to talk about intensely painful or emotional subjects.
