Body image is a pretty complicated subject for me. I’ve struggled with those sorts of issues since I was a child. So I was a little scared when I ordered this zine. Scared of what, exactly, I’m not sure. Either way, there was no need.

Fat-tastic is, well, fat-tastic!

This is a compilation zine, which I think is the strongest format for the subject. When it comes to issues like body image, the best thing to know is that you are not alone. Fat-tastic takes full advantage of that by not only creating a zine of multiple voices but in multiple expressions of feelings. There are personal written pieces, pieces of art, poetry and even a DIY tutorial.

This was the first time I’ve read body-positive anything, and I am glad to have a great introduction. I’m looking forward to reading the next issues and seeing how the zine grows.
