Zine Beat (aka Zeen Beat) is a zine by Karl Wenclas or King Wenclas from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, one of the founders of the ULA, or Underground Literary Alliance and publisher of New Philistine.

Issue #2 continues the adventures of a zine writer seeking to prod underground publishers into creating a literary movement. This zinester writes about moving to, and living in, Philly with some side trips into film reviews, 4 pages of "Stars of the Underground" (a list of literary favorites in zines); and a call for an indie literary revolution. He writes well and his style reads like pulp fiction, with most of his perzine adventures in or around bars.
