This post is just kind of an adjunct to my recent three part history of the the long-running Obscuro Art zine The White Buffalo Gazette (see below for links). In 2000 AD, editor Jeff Zenick published his last Gazette, one of the most lovingly produced zines I've ever seen. It included hand-silkscreened covers (featuring the artwork of the great John Miller), hand-embellished back covers, unique hand-glued found imagery, and, of course, the art, writing, and comix of dozens upon dozens of underground artists (all in alphabetical order!).
I recently pulled my copy out and thought I'd include some snapshots of it. This isn't of course every page from the issue, but should give you a good idea of what a Zenick-edited issue of White Buffalo Gazette was like. In my opinion, this issue was the crowning achievement of 90's obscuro publishing.
