Haich is a heavy Illustrated graphic novel style zine created by E J Zyla in 2008.
"...Haich started out as a platform to thrash out an idea without any specific direction – It is a make it up as you go zine – The idea behind it is that a letter of an alphabet can be so much more than just a part of a whole- You can create stories out of anything – Haich inspires me..."
