We sit down with Dawn Wailey and Lindsey Anderson from DCAZ to talk about the Duval Comics and Zine Fest. Originally scheduled for March 28 at the Main Library, the event has been postponed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  DCAZ will be Jacksonville’s first event designed to celebrate regional self-publishers. This free event will offer tabling for self-publishers to showcase their work, bookbinding, zine-making workshops and panel discussions featuring the local creators who helped lay the foundation for Northeast Florida’s DIY and self-publishing community.
