Looks like #ZICS15 is gonna be a part of an awesome weekend for zines and comix in Brissy! On Saturday night Lost Movements zine is launching their Xth issue with bands playing upstairs in Black Box, lvl 2 of the Absoe building, a bit before when we'll be hosting the after-party at Visions Gallery next door! If that's too much to handle in one hit, don't worry, Dr. Sketchy's is happening at around the same time - relaxed, inclusive, costumed life-drawing session to finish off the day at The Edge, Queensland, info here:
