This chapter comprises case studies of three fanzines: Jolt, Anathema and Hard as Nails. Each is examined as a means of understanding how fanzines offered space to develop political discourses and/or to define cultural identities in the face of competing media constructions. In their various ways, the fanzines engage with questions of feminism, anarchism and class.
