    Where to get old issues of Kai-zine?
    Hi,

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, I did some searching of the archives to see if there was an easy answer but I couldn't find anything. I'd like to get a complete set of Kai-zine issues, but I can't find them for sale in any of the usual places. Anyone have any leads?

    Thanks!

    I think putting something in the wanted section here would be your only bet. I don't think there would be any official source so you would just have to hope folks have extras. Maybe make a list of the ones you are needing.

    At this point, I'm wondering if they could be considered "abandoned" and scanned for public distribution... Is anyone in touch with the publishers to ask whether they'd mind? I mean, it was free in the first place...

    I might have a double or two. Don't PM me just yet. Let me look first.

    I've definitely asked for them via a wants thread in the past and have grabbed a few that way. I'm still missing a few, here and there, I believe...

    RIP KT.

    That would be great! Is there any way of contacting them? Issue number 11 is my fav, it features Buta.

    I used to have 3 or 4 copies of the Buta issue 11 (I ordered a ton of toys from Kaiju-Taro back in the day) but I've since traded or given away my extras. I think (but don't quote me) they stopped after issue 11?

    I miss them too :cry: . I would LOVE to have a scan of their sticker art. Their packages were adorned with fun stickers and they were nice people too... Chris I think you're right, there were only eleven issues. By the way Wheatpond, good post :D , and welcome to SB.

    Unfortunately, this sticker got sliced when I opened the box, but maybe someone with photoshop skillz could fix it up.

    I feel like unless the creator(s) explicitly asked for these not to be reproduced or something then it should be fine to scan and re-up them. Maybe someone will do that.

    I for one had no ideas these existed or what they are exactly... but I'm very interested in finding out!

    Does no one know how to get in touch with any of the folks involved with it? I feel like it wouldn't be out of the question to spearhead an initiative to Catalog the content and then upload a torrent.

    Scanning can be a long process... I wouldn't mind seeing simple iphone photos of some pages at this point :)

    Shut up and kaiju should be a patch or tee. I wish I had a scan of the sticker that's said something like "live kaiju inside"

    Dude! Thanks. Do you think it would be in bad taste if I used a similar graphic?

    I feel like you're directly and openly saying you would be making a graphic that's similar. If its basically an homage to this, and you are clear bout it I feel like its fine?


    Though you could take the idea and run with it your own way, the way things are nowadays that'd be a step above a ton of the work that gets put out anyway....

    Kaiju-Taro was great. I miss them, those please Mr. Postman stickers cracked me up. I used to buy loads of toys from them and could always find a good deal if you checked at the right time ;) I still have a bunch of stickers from them:
