Publication: 1990

In the 1970s, self-published magazines called "zines" became an important voice for alternative or marginalized media. With the rise of punk culture, zines became means for communication in such areas as queer and Riot Grrl movements. John Marr's "Murder Can Be Fun" series, which ran for over 20 years, looked at strange and unusual crimes through the lens of anti-establishment culture. Web browsers and the demise of independent book and record stores led to online zine publication.
