This is what people think of Grim:
What on earth goes through your mind!? This zine is weird, repulsive, engaging, beautiful… my head hurts!!! 😍😍😍😍😍
All 9 editions of Grim turned up this morning and after spending some time reading through I felt compelled to comment. I’m stunned by the quality, the ‘rawness’ and the time it must have spent making them. I’m an 80’s guy from New York and indie band flyers were a staple for me, Roberto has created something with the same feel and excitement – for me at least! Hurrah to grunge and roughness, hurrah to dark narrative and images. Well done you, I’ll be back for the rest.

Now Life doesn’t get any better until you have GRIM in it…this amazing artist Roberto Segate has been a great inspiration to me and great soul to work with for many years now…I’m trying to complete collections of all his work in print…I strongly believe one day he be worth fortune haha….cheeky meeee
Grim is weird! Dark images, twisted words and humour! It shouldn’t work but it bloody well does. Well done to everyone involved with this unique, odd zine 🙂
Whoop, whoop. happy days are here again. Grim dropped through door this morning! I’m so pleased to be part of this .
The only time when I turn my hate for FB posts into big love is when GRIM magazine arrives….and when I can see some of my work in it being published I’m feeling even darker then daaaaark…thank you Roberto 🌟🌟🌟 and I think this is the best edition so far I’ve seen…texts and graphic are on another level in this issue…keep creating you doing awesome work🌟
The Grims arrived this AM and I’m blown away by the imagery and stories. It feels like I’m sinking into a dark otherworld of confused narratives and contradicting imags. At first I didn’t know what the hell i was looking at but it began to make some sense the more i looked and thought. You say that they’re disposable but I for one will be keeping mine very safe!

Thanks for the latest issue of Bunny Lovers Monthly. All the pictures of the lovely little furballs made my day and I especially liked the article on How To Pimp Your Bunny’s Hutch. The only complaint I have is that the glittery pink cover is a little OTT! I wouldn’t normally mind but it’s a bit embarrassing when you’re trying to read it on the bus. I found a solution though and wrapped it in another fanzine I just got called Grim, a piece of cheap tat that seems to consist mainly of tits and gore. Does the job though as people seem to keep their distance when they see it Keep up the good work. Love & Kisses. Stevie xxx

Grim is like taking a nightmare and encasing it in glass – The imagery, the wording, all of which lend a hand to the destifying nightmare that’s so stunning if you let it be. The images, while potentially disturbed, are also the most beautiful, and captivating. The unwashed honesty of what you see in Grim, aswell as what’s not seen is what makes this so unique – You won’t be dissapointed!!

I recently purchased copies of Roberto Segate’s books: ‘Where the hideous is beautiful‘ and Grim. Hope it’s not too self indulgent as I feature in them, alongside some other beautiful models. Very strong and powerful imagery, with well chosen phrasing. These are not just books, these are art and I’m honoured to have been part of it. You are a master of your art and it really is a pleasure and an honour to work with you.
Roberto Segate into the darkness with youuuu….⭐️⭐️⭐️ASTOUNDING⭐️⭐️⭐️
absolutely love your printed babies😍😍😍 … I can’t wait for more of your amazing work to see!….AMAZINGLY TWISTED DARKTALES❤️…keep pushing! Keep pushing!⭐️⭐️⭐️!

Grim arrived today and I wasn’t disappointed. The depth of darkness together with a little subtle humour leaves me feeling uneasy. I was particularly impressed with the way that Roberto has hand stiched the book pages. That’s a nice touch!
I was brought up on dark art fanzines throughout college. This feels just the same, yes it’s a bit more polished but it still feels rough-and-ready. Bravo sir!
