seriously? There are fannish colouring books? That is the most awesome thing I have ever heard. --MegR 14:52, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't surprised. I mean, people still offer their lineart for download and coloring fun in some parts of fandom, so there was bound to the an offline equivalent.--RatCreature 15:08, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

zine category question

Are all coloring books zines?--æthel 01:37, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

The genre exists online as well, that is fanartists post line art inviting people who like to color it themselves. I don't know how often it happens that anyone collects several of these and posts them as pdf in a full "coloring book". I mean, it's not all that common a fanac to begin with. This reminds me of the maybe related paper doll fanac. That I've seen adapted into flash games once or twice in fandom, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone do that for online coloring in fandom.--RatCreature 11:26, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
But even the print version doesn't seem to fit the zine definition on the zine page: In media fandom, a zine or fanzine is usually either a novel or novella-length fanfic story, or a collection of fanfic stories, often edited. Other zine types included adzines ... letterzines ... or reviewzines ... If it's rare, then it probably doesn't need a separate category, but I guess I'm just hoping for the chance to remove some types of print material from the huge zine category.--æthel 15:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
I think that definition is more due to the fic-centrism of many articles that fanart stuff didn't even cameup. Like there are also art portfolio zines. No fic, just fanart. And those are definitely a kind of zine, IMO.--RatCreature 16:36, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
