New humour zine: 'Blakes 7: A Marvellous Monthly'
GoldChannel
I figured now is the time to make this public, to prompt me to get my bum properly in gear!

I am working on a small B7 humour zine which is partly a spoof of the Marvel Monthly, and partly just silly nonsense. Since getting into B7 over xmas it has become one of my absolute faves, and i'm the sort of person who likes to express their fandom through making daft little zines Smile

It will be very cheap and cheerful, A5, photocopied B&W, and free in the UK (I will look into postage costs for overseas).

I am currently working on story outlines and cartoons detailing the FULL episode guide for Series 5. yes, Series 5! At last the REAL truth about what happened after Gauda Prime!!

If anyone likes the sound of such a zine and would like to contribute anything fun, silly, humorous or even just plain positive (jokes, drabbles, cartoons, reviews or articles, drawings) please feel free to get in touch either here or PM Smile

More information soon!

Which one? How do you define the value and application of a Spacial or the length of the War? Grin
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

you can ask Orac anything.....




......just don't expect an altogether serious answer Wink

Why not ask him both.

I would like to ask Orac:
1. What is the length of the Intergalactic War?
2. How long is a spacial?
3. How much did Vila drink while on Xenon Base?
4. Did Avon wear leather studded underpants?
5. Is it true that Orac and Gambit's circuit board had an affair following the episode "Games"?

work on this is progressing nicely and with luck most of the art should be knocked together sometime this week.

If anyone likes the sound of a silly B7 zine drop me a line if you have any contribution ideas! Smile

Other than that, hold tight, because Blakes 7 Marvellous Monthly is coming sooooon!

What's the answer to life, the universe and every thing?

just don't ask Orac what the QUESTION is....!
 
GoldChannel
rather embarrassingly, it looks the zine may not happen

I have the MS Publisher file almost ready to go, but... I have this evening had an unpleasant argument and falling-out with the family member who was going to get me free photocopying/printing (one reason why it was going to be free).

Family fall outs have a tendency to be repaired in time but given the situation this isn't one i'm especially eager to do so just yet!!

So officially the zine is on ice. Sad

I am wondering what to do with the text and picture material I've assembled so far. One option is to perhaps do it a s a spoof virtual mag here on Horizon.

Back to the drawing board.....

Could you publish it as a downloadable PDF?
 
littlesue
I'm no expert I(ask daughter no. 2!!) but you could upload it to Media Fire and have it as a PDF Download

Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

that's a good idea, hadn;'t thought of that. Is it easy to do? Smile
 
GoldChannel
p.s with luck I may still be able to get a paper zine out, because m'lady love said she would make some plastic badges to give way as a 'Fantastic Free Gift' :lol

You open an account with Media fire (I think that's it) and then upload the pdf to it. People can then download it.
My Bookshelf is up there in the cloud; as are Linda Short's songs of the seven.
As I said, I'm no expert, Sarah usually sits with me and talks me through the process a couple of times.
It wouldn't hurt to give it a go and put the link on the forum (Says she who was born 6 months after rationing finished and didn't get a telephone in the house until she got married in 1975!!!!!)

that certainly sounds easy enough!
 
GoldChannel
phew - the print version of the zine looks like it may yet happen (mother dearest gave the naughty relative a bollocking *lol)... but looking into the PDF thing, i realised that may be the perfect way to offer it for overseas readers.

With the free badge, the print zine can go out to UK fans and the PDF is for anyone outside the UK and/or who doesn't mind not getting a badge.

I have a rough cover image so thought i'd start teasing people now........ Smile
