Hiatus and NOCAZ Fest

Alchemist’s Closet has been on a long hiatus, as some of you may have noticed! I intended to have the distro back online by July 1, but instead I moved halfway across the country to New Orleans to be with my partner, and the distro has taken a backseat to finding a place to live and many more issues.

However, now that I’m settled, I’ve been planning for the New Orleans Comics and Zine Festival, where I will have loads of zines, including a few new ones. The New Orleans Comics and Zines Fest is the weekend of November 14th-16th, 2014 at the New Orleans Public Library, and tabling is on November 15th. I’m really excited to be a part of the fest!

As for the online distro, I plan to reopen with a rotating small selection and grab bags available, in order to keep the workload manageable for myself. I will also reopen the Etsy store, The Alchemist’s Annex. In the meantime, I am accepting FREE zines and merch for NOCAZ— freebies only, because I don’t have the time and space to manage the logistics of consignment. Please email for a mailing address.

I never intended to be closed for so long, and I apologize for the long hiatus. However, I am very excited to be part of this fest!



    are you taking submissions?



    Unfortunately we can’t accept submissions right now. We’re doing big reorganizing and downsizing of the distro! However, I will likely buy zines later this year (2015) for the 2nd NOCAZ Fest, and I may make some select purchases from time to time. My energy has shifted toward e-publishing- check out the recent news for more info!

    Thanks for your interest in the distro.
