What's The Time Mrs Woolf? debuted at Thought Bubble Comic Convention in Leeds this November at the Inspired Comics stand (thanks to Sammy and all at Inspired!)

Big thanks to Naomi for her interview and being so gracious; Jen Denty for the cover and illustration, and Sarahwoolf for her time, hard work and patience in putting the 'zine together.


  1. Hey, I met Sammy at a zine meet this weekend and she showed me this gorgeous zine! I was wondering how I can get a copy, or if you'd be up for a trade? I have 2 issues out of my zine 'Elderflower Tea' if you are interested? It's a sort of twee perzine. There are other details on my blog.

    Thanks, Sarah x

  2. Hello Sarah! I'm very pleased to hear you liked the look of Mrs. Woolf, it was very kind of Sammy to take it with her. Currently we don't have any spare copies of issue 1, but I plan to get some more printed when issue 2 comes out at the end of this week.

    We'll be setting up an online shop once issue 2 is finished, so you can buy both issues there, or I'd be very happy to trade if you prefer. What sort of arrangement did you have in mind?

  3. Ohh we are name twins! I wish I was called Sarah Woolf though! hehe. Ohh it is exciting to see you have another issue out. I'd be happy to have both issues depending on how much they come to... yours are a lot more professional looking than mine... maybe we could do a part trade/part money? My zines are just black&white copied ones so I wouldn't want to just trade if yours cost a lot to print.

    If you could email me with details etc. that would be great, I always forget to check comments on here!

    Sarah x
