Thank you Neil Clarke- that was literally a wealth of information for me. Thank you! I always assumed that it would be an endeavor that required a lot of investment before the payoff and you just reinforced that idea.
VydorScope, I too think it would be a ton of work. Like I mentioned before- I'm mainly looking at zines over magazines. But I'd assume, for a magazine, the work could get overwhelming (especially if you were doing it as an individual).
