Maresi Starzmann: Zines
As we hasten through the days, caught in an infinite loop of work/sleep, we are robbed of our dreams and desires. Comics can offer radical alternatives to this existence. The fantastical worlds conjured in comics provide a truer look at our universe, frequently ending in a world turned upside down. MACHINE TIME follows a classic comics narrative with a visual style that is dynamic yet sophisticated. Still growing in scope and vision, this is my first attempt at publishing as a comic creator.
5" x 7"; 16 pages of black & white illustration printed on 28lb Hammermill paper; cover made from 100lb uncoated paper; exterior front and back cover in color; saddle stitch binding.
