I feel really close to Tony lately while working on a new zine called Crab Malice. I remember how excited he was as Broken Umbrella submissions came in. When I feel stuck about something I think of Tony and how he tackled the various challenges and puzzles of putting together a zine with many submissions. Broken Umbrella was so rad when it came out and it ages like a fine wine. I appreciate it even more as the various people involved and covered in it have gone on to do so many wonderful things. It's quite heartwarming. Tony knew what treasures surrounded him. He always did, from the first issue of Ground Beef, to Synthesis, to Broken Umbrella and beyond.
