Comfy Chair: A New Online Doctor Who web 'zine!
On September 29th, 2010, I launched the initial basic format of the Comfy Chair: New York's Doctor Who Fanzine
This will serve a two fold purpose:
1) To provide space to up and coming writers & established writers for original, and new articles on all things Doctor Who
2) To provide everyone with an interest in fandom, a continuing series of essays on the history of Doctor Who fandom in the United States.
This 'zine was established by Anthony Burdge and Jessica Burke, two of the three Editors of The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who.
We are also very happy to have on board thus far as our featured contributors, our Mythological Dimensions co-editor Kristine Larsen, Barnaby Edwards of Doctor Who New York & Who York, Dr. Matt Hills author of Triumph of a Time Lord: Regenerating Doctor Who in the 21st Century, and Writer/Historian Matthew Kilburn, Jamie Beckwith, lead writer of The Terrible Zodin-our fellow Who 'zine in the UK, and Leslie McMurtry, Editor of The Terrible Zodin
We can look forward to an ongoing historical look at US Doctor Who fandom, reviews of the new 11th Doctor Novels, analytical reviews of the forthcoming series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures, longer features on the forthcoming Torchwood series 4, and much more!
Check out our style sheet which explains what we are looking for with regard to submissions, and formatting of your contribution.
Also the beginning of our archive of U.S. Doctor Who fandom and our 1st U.S. Doctor Who Fandom Survey!
We would be very grateful if you took a few moments of your time to take part in our survey!
We will not be a huge source of current Doctor Who filming, spoiler or release news. We will flesh out our list of News/Podcast portals as we move forward. We will occasionally have con reports, such as from NY Comic Con, Who York, Doctor Who New York and the Gallifreyan Embassy events. But if you want spoilers, and up to date news please click on the links we provide.
So subscribe now, and receive content as it is published, sit back in your comfy chair and enjoy our new 'zine!
