UPDATE:
Of course there’s always at least one typo in anything that’s actually printed on paper (being an internet-only publishing endeavor certainly has its advantages) and of course the one that we’ve found so far involves a quote from one of the most important people involved with Three Imaginary Girls. Our hugest of apologies to Jason Doctor for the accidental omission of an attribution for his quote on page 11 of the zine. It’s such a great quote too!!!
Huge thanks and hugs to everyone who took the time to share their imaginary memories with us:
