Rebel Doll Zine

A citywide collaboration of art, music and writing.

Rebel Doll Zine (RDZ) is a showcase of Indianapolis based artists, writers, and musicians and is an independently published Zine based out of Indianapolis, IN.

The first issue was released in 2009. After 8 issues, RDZ’s sole editor (Rebel) Jane (s.Jane Mills) put RDZ on a bit of a hiatus in 2012 to pursue some art and music goals –  illustrating and playing in her band.

In 2016, Jane’s friend Kelso organized a Zine Festival in Indianapolis (The Gluestick Festival). Jane will be tabling at Gluestick Fest for a second year and will be selling artwork, stickers, and zines (reissues and present).

Rebel Doll Zine was reborn – Phoenix style – with issue number 9 released on July 9, exclusively for The First Gluestick Festival. 2nd Run can be purchased at

Issue #10 submission deadline is June 10th, for release July 8th, 2017 (Theme: Chaos)
