Disconcerting #8 is the zine that reignited my passion for zines and DIY culture. I purchased it in April of this year. Disconcerting #8 by Janell Hoong, a student in Singapore, is less like a zine and more like a novella. Weighing in at 74 pages, it is the lengthiest zine in my collection. Disconcerting is separated into 17 sections, each one a peek into Janell's life. I will be honest, I haven't read the whole zine. What I have read has been well-written and rather poignant. Janell has since closed her shop, but she can still be contacted through her Etsy profile.
