(They also have a darkroom and silkscreening facilities at very reasonable rates). For the past six months, a series of events for Hanging Out at ABC No Rio for artists to come and explore its history and future. Tonight is the final event, and it’s a discussion about independent publishing in the real and digital world. The panelists are a wide range of underground comic artists, zinesters and contemporary artists. Whether you’ve been making zines since you could work a copy machine or if you still try to add an apostrophe to the word “zine,” you should check it out.
