TQ exists to bring you the best in matters relating to the no-audience underground scene, and is primarily concerned with giving subscribers a physical zine, and enjoying the thrill of printed words on paper. However, we aim to bring you more when funds and energy permit, and this page gives a flavor of what goodies are in store.
Bringing subscriber specials comes at a cost to TQ and the artist, and therefore availability is sometimes less than the number of subscribers. Where this is the case, specials will be inserted into TQ packages at random by the package stuffer.
If you are interested in releasing material in partnership with TQ, please email
Forthcoming ‘subscriber only’ specials
No responsibility is accepted for plans that fail to materialize, however this list is accurate at the time of posting. Where specials available are less than the number of subscribers, they will be placed in zines at random by the envelope stuffer
Specials are in alphabetical order
