What is The Revenge of Print? It's a challenge issued by longtime zine supporters Atomic Books and Quimby's to zinesters: make one more issue of their zine in order to combat the demise of the print medium. Print is suffering. When I unleashed CdC #15 in 2007, I found that many of the independent stores with which I had dealt in the past had disappeared. And, as I write this, the ink on the death certificate for the second-largest chain bookstore in the country, Borders, isn't even dry. It's hard out here for a pimp.
You'll find a lot of familiar names in CdC #16; Rich Osmond, Skizz Cyzyk, David MacGregor, Chris Cummins, Mike Sullivan, Andrew Rausch. You'll also find some new names. In my travels for Impossibly Funky I ran into a lot of loyal CdC readers who wanted to put in their two cents; Joshua Gravel, Ralph Elawani, Jef Burnham, Karen Lillis, Kyle Barrowman. And then there's Dion Conflict, longtime reader and friend. Dion has been threatening to unleash his particular brand of film criticism on me for a while; now the whole world can enjoy it.
Thanks to everyone who has been supportive of Cashiers du Cinemart and Impossibly Funky. I won't promise an issue #17 but stranger things have happened.
