Spanish fanzine movement and its evolution in the digital age: a conceptual proposal for the webzine

By Alba Giménez Devís and Jessica Izquierdo Castillo


A fanzine is an alternative and subculture media and that acts as a platform for new<br />social discourses not present in the hegemonic media circle. It is, therefore, a magazine<br />produced by fans of a particular subject produced through craftsmanship and low cost<br />techniques whose purpose is merely expressive as countercultural initiative. With the advent<br />of the digital age and the technological revolution, the use of new production tools<br />causes a structural change in the medium giving it a new name: webzine.<br />This study focuses on the analysis of the consequences of the digital revolution on this<br />medium, using as the main study object the webzine. With this, are examined the basic<br />characteristics of self-publishing and the methodology is based on the application of an<br />extracted key aspects of the original model as analytical standards to a defined sample<br />of ten webzines still valid today
