Introducing the First Two 2023 Zine Award Judges: KC Green and Gretchen Felker-Martin!


Broken Pencil, the magazine of zines and underground printed arts is proud to introduce our first judges in this year’s Broken Pencil Zine Awards!

KC GREEN is a cartoonist in Western Massachusetts. He did the comic Gunshow which spawned the books “Anime Club,” “Graveyard Quest,” and the meme “This is Fine.” He’s currently doing a gag strip for King Features and looking at old sketchbooks to find out where the problem first started.

GRETCHEN FELKER-MARTIN, author of Manhunt, is a Massachusetts-based horror author and film critic. You can follow her work on Twitter and read her fiction and film criticism on Patreon, Nylon Magazine, The Outline, and more.
