Obscurity Unlimited
OU is born in 1997, still before I own my own computer. #1 is done while visiting my parents house, trying to research the beginings of the internet for anything small press. #1 is a flop. I do not try again until 2000, when I finally catch up and get my own computer. OU runs stronger and stronger from there, until 2003

Self Publisher!  Magazine
The original run of SP! was born in a time of small press turmoil, 1989, as the void of Small Press Comics Explosion’s cancellation had a number of publications start up. It went from an 8 page first issue, to a newsprint zine we gave away by the 1,000s at conventions, and faulterd under the course of unplanned moves, marriage, divorce, and just getting too big to carry it’s own weight.
