About the Denver Zine Library


Comics galore! Zines are organized by topic.

The Denver Zine Library is a non profit organization founded in 2003 whose mission is to preserve, protect and promote the culture of zines and self published original work through archival collection, workshops and events. The Denver Zine Library currently houses one of the largest zine collections in North America with a preserved collection of over 15,000 independent and alternative zines. The organization is entirely volunteer run, and the public can access the full library and archives during open hours.
