Reactions and Reviews

The conzine from the 1997 convention, Reflections, is unusually diverse and lively, and is (to the reviewer’s memory) the first all-season conzine, with both Classic and 4th season stories. The zine is well worth the price just for the gorgeous color front cover of a table in Vincent’s chamber, and its contents: award-winning art from Kevin Barnes. The Barnes back cover of Vincent and Catherine in Renaissance dress, though b/w (as is the original), is almost just as handsome. Suitable for framing. The zine features a special section in which fans reflect on how Beauty and the Beast has changed their lives....A substantial, literate, and interesting zine. [1]
