Last Girls Club

About

75 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

The Last Girls Club magazine is inspired by the great gothic comics and zines of last century. It is a place to publish feminist horror, flip the tropes, and terrify the local villagers. This is about revenge, retribution, and hidden magics, but it is also about morgue humor, piquant quotes, and nods to real goddesses and real harridans.
