This week we take a look at a thoroughly modern zine: A Visitor’s Guide to the Rainy City, by Rich Forest, illustrated by Bill Spytma and published by Superhero Necromancer. A product of ZineQuest 2, it is an entirely system agnostic setting book that details the strange and wondrous city where the rain never stops (and also a floating pirate stronghold island thing and some more rural areas surrounding the city). It is all caps GREAT, brimming with personality, overflowing with whimsy and drowning in ideas. Bill Spytma’s art, which merges aesthetics of medieval art with those of the Victorian era, is delightful and goes a long way to making everything feel cohesive. A huge, vibrant and exciting accomplishment. Zines are the future, folks.
