Raiders of the Lost Archive


For the third year, for 24 hours straight, we’ll read, catalog, eat delicious food, drink coffee and be part of building the world’s largest collection of zines and small press comics. With over 20,000 uncatalogued zines dating back to the 1950s, you’re sure to find a treasure.

The work is not difficult. Knowledge of the alphabet is helpful. Hands-on training in cataloguing will be provided. All it takes is you and a computer. Of course, you can come do it solo but a team will provide support in those times of alphabetical need. You can even earn merit badges and compete against your friends in our online game.

Hardcore Raiders will read for 24 hours, while lighter Spelunkers can simply stop in for a few hours of reading. Some teams split the 24 hours into shifts so there will always be a team member cataloguing whether they’re a night owl or an early bird.
