Meet-A-Zinester: Amanda Magel

Welcome Amanda Magel to ABQZF9! Here’s a little info about Amanda’s work. Come check it out at ABQ Zine Fest on Saturday, October 5th from 11am-5pm at National Hispanic Cultural Center!

I got inspired by zine culture after encountering the remnants of Riot Grrrl, and from various comic and animation artists who create their own ‘passion projects’ to share amongst each other at conventions in the forms of zines. A lot of my work tends to be introspective and involves elements of Spanish-Catholic imagery, pop culture, culture shifts, 90’s anime, social media culture - all that good stuff.
