Cataloging in Gemini Season 2015

Have you ever noticed how many current and former zine makers have Gemini as a sun sign? Just Like a Gemini author Jolie Nuñez-Noggle is one, but also Margarita Alcantara, Andria Alefhi, Sara Jaffe, Lauren Jade Martin, Carrie McNinch, Celia Perez, Annie Pho, Alycia Sellie, Kelly Shortandqueer, Eleanor Whitney, and Alex Wrekk, to name those listed on my Facebook birthday calendar.

The people whose work I added to the catalog this week may or may not be Geminis.

Tenderfoot #1: First Day of School by Jenna Weiss, 2003

It doesn't surprise me that on my first day of any sort of public education, I get beat up. Maybe "beat up" is an over-exaggeration; I don't know if preschoolers are capable of "beating someone up." But let's just say I was "physically assaulted" by my 4-year-old classmate. He came bearing down on me like a menacing dandelion puff.
