start stuffing your stockings HERE!

I’m genuinely chuffed to announce that Antiquated Future is the newest online vendor to peddle The East Village Inky! Supporting them = supporting me!

So much good stuff here, including my favorite, Is It Just Me or Are We Nailing This?: Essays on BoJack Horseman. Get you some!

Wow! Cool! Wow Cool is now selling the East Village Inky!

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

Welcome and thanks to the latest vendor to risk adding the zine to their shelves: WOW COOL, a serious source of indie comics, musics, videos and zines in the virtual universe (by way of California…)

We’d be much obliged if you’d throw some business their way!

Get you some!

Back in stock for the first time in nearly a decade!

Created in a single afternoon as part of the New York Public Library’s centennial celebration. Definitely as messy as an early East Village Inky!

Show a librarian, a library, a Little Free Library, or a library lover some LIBRARY LOVIN’! If nothing else, they’ll know you cared enough to spend a buck. (Double your fun and get one for yourself, while you’re at it!)

Last minute Valentine!

COVID-19-era Birthday Wish

Friday, March 27th, 2020

Know what I want for MY BIRTHDAY Sunday? I want you to buy a zine (or book or some paper-based oddity) from Quimby’s Bookstore, a longtime supporter of The East Village Inky & 1000s of zinemakers the world over.

This is in lieu of a Facebook fundraiser or donation solicitation- I figure everyone’s hand’s out, and everyone who can is putting their dwindling funds where they feel it’s needed, and need no further lobbying from me.
Treat yourself by following my orders (always!). Discover some weird new thing, or revisit a beloved weird old thing. Your purchase, no matter how small, will benefit a rad & venerable independent bookstore. Get a zine. Get mail (unless you want do Chicago curb service, or alternatively are picking up necessary supplies at Crest Hardware & Urban Garden Center in Brooklyn, where Quimby’s Bookstore NYC has a pop up.

Extra credit: make the birthday girl’s day by hipping her to what you chose.

Extra extra credit: Get inspired to make a zine your own damnself and send me a copy whenever it rolls off the press.

Go big with the Qustomized Quimby’s Quarantine Zine Pack – manager Liz Mason will tailor make the zinely equivalent of pinata full of surprises based on your tastes, kinks and interests.

🎂🎂🎂❤️ where the hell’s the zine emoji? What has this world come to?

Celebrate Ayun Halliday Day 2016

Monday, March 28th, 2016



Ex-Circulation Manager Jambo has asked me to tell all you nice people that the VERY BEST way you can observe Ayun Halliday Day tomorrow would be to buy a zine.

If you have never read an issue of The East Village Inky, March 29 would be a particularly auspicious day to order a back issue, subscribe, renew a lapsed subscription or lay a gift sub on an unsuspecting friend.

Or venture into the unknown by ordering one of the hundreds, nay thousands of titles by my fellow travelers. Go straight to the source on etsy, or support one of the independent book and zine sellers who have supported the Inky over the years. Take yer pick:

Quimby’s Bookstore,
Atomic Books,
Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery,
Women & Children First Bookstore,
Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center
Microcosm Publishing
Parcell Press
Birdcage Bottom Books
MonkeyWrench Books
City Lights Bookstore
Meltdown Comics and Collectibles

If you can’t browse in person, order online. That’s what the Internet’s for, son!

Take to social media and tell us what you got. Virtual zine party March 29, wahoooo!!!
