A big trend this year are collaborative fan art zines (which we’ve already written about). So while this isn’t the first Dragon Ball Z fan art zine we stumbled across, Dragon Ball Zine, curated by Katie So & Stefan Tosheff, is definitely one of the best when it comes to caliber of art.
In a tribute to the popular animated show that ran throughout the ’90s, the 8.5 x 11″ glossy zine features art from more than 34 artists that were selected from a pool of more than 200 submissions. It also features past illustrators we’ve written about, like Sachin Teng, Katie So, and T-Wei. While the unique variety of artistic approaches is interesting, the zine’s true selling point is its nostalgia. It’s interesting to see how one TV show has made such an impact on the cultural landscape, even 20 years later. Remember to buy a copy.
