Favorite Soulsborne Boss: Gehrman, the First HunterHeya, I’m Keats! I’m a long-time fan of the souls series (with Bloodborne being my undisputed fave - sorry Elden Ring 😭) and a writer/mod in fandom-land. I actually started my zine modding career by heading a zine called BNHAborne, my love letter to my favorite game of all time + BNHA ✨

What is a Zine
A “zine” is a fan-produced magazine, typically created in small, limited-run batches.
Zines are found in a variety of forms including digital pdfs to physical booklets. Often times they are accompanied by fan-made merchandise.
Zines are not official merchandise and have no affiliation to the creators of the source material the zine is based on.
This will be a fan planner featuring the main SoulsBorne titles (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro, & Elden Ring) as the passage of seasons.
What will contributors get in return?
We plan to give every contributor a full bundle, including any digital merchandise!
Will this be physical or digital?
This zine is currently planned to be physical with merchandise!
How big will the zine be?
A5 with 100+ pages, 12 unmarked months
Will there be merch?
SFW or NSFW?
The zine and merch will be SFW
How many contributors?
Estimated: 27 page artists, 3 merch artists, and 2 writers (depending on interest)
How will you select artists?
Overall we’re evaluating artists on style, color, anatomy, technique, & how they fit into the zine theme.
Will you be giving application feedback?
We will not be able to offer feedback as we don’t want to overwork the mod team.
Do creators keep ownership of their work?
Yes, of course! We only ask that contributors not post or stream their work until after all sales have ended and the mod team has given to go ahead.
Is traditional art okay?
Yes! So long as you’re able to provide a high-resolution scan of your artwork.
