PUNC: the Zine
Throughout 2022 while the radio show was on hiatus, I printed and sold a series of zines under the name PUNC. There are many advantages to print, so many that I won't name them here. However I did make digital PDFs of the zines available to some people who couldn't get the print issues for one reason or another. Now that all the issues are sold, I'm making issues 01, 02 and 03 of PUNC available here. Click on the images to download the PDFs!
At The Library Project:
The first issue of PUNC was planned for release during the two My Chemical Romance gigs that took place in Dublin in May 2022. In the end, issue 001 wasn't released until early June, with a slightly altered text. Issue 002 came out in August as a belated Pride issue and Issue 003 was meant to come out around Hallowe'en, but in the end came out in early November. The PUNC Christmas Annual was just about released before Christmas, hitting na siopaí on the 23rd of December. The Christmas Annual is still in print: once all the issues & all of the reprints are sold, you'll be able to find the pdf here.PUNC 1-3 were sold in the Library Project, in Connolly Books, in Little Deer Comics and at Dance to The Underground, the Queer Punk night at Fibber Magee's. I have some regrets about that last one as I feel like I brought commerce & advertising & self-promotion into a night that is better without it. However I'm very grateful to Rob & Rod for letting me sell my zines there, & to all the people who bought them and chatted to me about zines. You've been very enthusiastic about PUNC, & that's why I've kept going even when I wonder if it's crap.
