Since 1999, Davida Gypsy Breier's review zine, Xerography Debt might be best summarized as an obsession for all involved, or as she puts it: "The review zine with perzine tendencies."
Billy da Bling Bunny Roberts recently said "It's the glue that holds the zine community together." Maintaining three issues per year, the 35th issue of Xerography Debt is still the same ol' charming personality, allowing a hand-picked cast of contributors to wax philosophical about both the zines they love and where those zines find them in their lives.
Rather than spending time and ink bashing things (other than Amazon, which this issue picks on a bit) or being forced to write about something they don't care about, the reviewers hand-select hundreds of zines to write about and the result is enthusiastic, satisfying, and under-saturated! In an age of blogs and tweets, Xerography Debt is a beautiful, earnest anachronism, a publication that seems to come from a different era, but is firmly entrenched in the now.
