Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities


This review has been a long time coming! We first spotted a preview copy of Tinnitus at last year’s Victoria Baths zine convention, and were immediately drawn to Benjamin Cooney’s bold, charismatic drawings. The first full issue of Tinnitus followed in September, and is made up of a series of vignettes, stemming from different sources — Sonic Youth lyrics, the travails of working at a coffee shop, hippies. It’s beautifully printed too, with a slick linoprint dustjacket. Definitely one of my favourite comics in the zine library. We’ll keep you posted if we stumble onto the next issue any time soon.
