Thanks for your patience everyone! Issue III was supposed to come out in January, but I've been doing some zine submission restructuring that has taken a lot longer than expected. Issue III is due to print at the end of May. I appreciate your patience and look forward to getting this in store and into your hands soon!
Due to a variety of hurdles - most of which involve puppets, Issue III will be published Fall, 2014. Thank you for your patience and persistent website visits! I am just as excited to publish these as you are to read them! I also apologize to anyone who has been shopping Quimby's to pick up Issue II, we sold out and are working on restocking our inventory very soon!
