Nightrain Fanzine?

Recommended Posts

Remember zines?  Homemade magazines made with a copier and distributed to friends or suckers that would pay a few bucks for an issue?

Apparently someone was making a GNR zine for a while.

 

Just found this listing for sale in Japan....

Is this something anyone would be interested in?

I was a sucker that bought at least 1 copy. It was a UK version I got. I still have it. My edition is from the Chinese era and mentions VR too. 

2500 Yen is about £17.50.

In the days before the internet, these were essential - you never made any money from these so I don't understand the ''sucker' remark. They were usually a ''labour of love''.

The "sucker" remark was just for the zines I remember being foisted on ME back in high school and college.   Some kid with a smudgy black inked manifesto about communism and punk rock and stuff like that....stuff I had no interest in.   I'm sure I'd have picked these up back in the day since there was ZERO news from the Guns camp from about 1993 to 1999.
