Helsinki Zine Fest is part of Helsinki Comics Festival and a platform where zine artists, readers and people interested in counter-culture may gather, sell their works and meet like-minded people.

A zine is a small-circulation self-published work made by one person or a small group of people. Zines may include comics, text, pictures, poems or anything in between! The zine subculture was born in the 1970s punk movement. Nowadays zines give many artists a platform to dabble in any subject or artform freely.
