Punk Planet
Punk Planet

Punk Planet is a 16,000 print run punk zine, based in Chicago, IL, that focuses most of its energy on looking at punk subculture. In addition to covering music, Punk Planet also covers visual arts and a wide variety of progressive issues -- including media criticism, feminism, and labor issues. The most notable features in Punk Planet are the interviews and the album and zine reviews. The interviews generally run two or three pages, and tend to focus on the motivations of the artist (or organizer, activist, or whoever) being interviewed.
