In the Name of the Moon
long text post!

Hi guys, I just want to say a few things about the zine, now that it’s all finalized and ready for printing!

The first issue of In The Name Of The Moon had eight pages. I threw it together with some of my friends from SVA to have something to give out at NYCC. I thought I’d be lucky to get 20 people to submit for the second issue.

Issue two now has about 110 pages and over 80 contributors, most of whom I’ve never met. Needless to say, I have never organized anything on this scale before. I was totally unprepared for popularity of the project and the volume of work I received.

So what I really want to say is, thank you to everyone for having patience with me while I learned the ropes of being an editor and organizer. You guys have asked great questions and now I feel like I could edit anything!

The thing that has kept me going is getting to see all the amazing work you guys did. It’s inspired me to think of ways to make the next issue even better. I hope you guys are as excited for issue three as I am!

In the meantime, keep a look out on this tumblr for info on where the zine will be at Otakon. I’ll be making a post for that on Tuesday. And early in August I’ll have info for all you guys out there who can’t make it to Baltimore but still want a copy.

Thanks again guys, you rock!
