Some Three Worders were there.
They were easier to spot as they were setting up.
Sarah Laing & Melissa Laing
Some faces were very familiar to the Three Words team.
Other familiar comics creators were present in less obvious forms.
Angeline ChirnsideZine archivist and chair of the recent Three Words Auckland City Library Comics, Zines and Feminism panel discussion, Angeline Chirnside, was busy organising.

And then the tables were stocked and the doors opened.
Customers were a mix of comic familiars...
...some of whom had tables themselves.....
...while others were simply drawn by the crowd, to discover.....
...to meet artists and learn about zines.
It was a great opportunity to catch up with peers.
And everyone had a wonderful time.
Many thanks to Auckland Zinefest organisers, including but not limited to, Linda Lew, Simrin Ahmed, Sophie Watson, Jess Fu, Hamish Noonan, & Ya-Wen Ho, and everyone else who helped in myriad ways to make a very successful zinefest 2015.
