Zine: Illuminati Girl Gang #3

Cool things inside Illuminati Girl Gang's third volume:
surreal collages, weird comics, sad pretty poetry, and more.

Back in November, we posted on Illuminati Girl Gang's second volume (here).  If you weren't able to get your hands on it, copies are available here. As I mentioned in the previous post, Illuminati Girl Gang is a quarterly zine dedicated to showcasing female perspectives in art and literature. And while IGG's third volume has a few of the same contributors as last time (Grace Miceli, Julia Hermanndottir, etc.) I was happy to see an entire list of new contributors and a lot of names that I recognized (Girls Get Busy's Beth Siveyer, Shabby Doll House's LK Shaw, etc). It's really exciting to see the IGG community grow and become much more than an alt lit zine. Inside you'll find everything from surreal collages to weird comics to experimental film to sad pretty poetry. There's not much more I can say about this without overanalyzing it, and this seems like something that shouldn't be over analyzed. You can view the online version of the zine here.
