Planetary Problems Magazine

Fellow Earthlings, 

Planetary Problems is a space opera zine that brings science, creativity and expansive thought to your doorstep, and we need your support to make this a reality. Without news, politics, or stances - we give you a content-drive zine to remind you that we are living on Planet Earth in the Milky Way Galaxy and suspended circling the dopest star in the universe. Most importantly, we (you!) are the consciousness of the cosmos; our collective existence is the space opera. 

We focus on 3 main elements and sandwich them between front and back covers that are manually printed on an 1890's letterpress: 

(1) Earth and Planetary Science
(2) Science Fiction & Expansive Thought
(3) Art & Illustration

In our full color zine, you will find: 

- Actual Earth and Planetary Science Articles
- Interviews with scientists
- A Sci-Fi Novella that builds with each issue
- Cosmic Comics - 1 serial comic and 1 guest comic per issue
- Several full page illustrations, paintings, etchings, and photography
- Expansive thought pieces
- Cerebral Poetry

We will use your donation to pay for the paper, ink, labor on the letterpress, our artists, software subscriptions, shipping, and support for future prints.
