II stix Back Online After Four Years

II stix, one of the first Asian American zines on the Internet, is back online after a four year hiatus, with a new redesign to boot. Also revived from Internet purgatory is one of the comics that editor Ki Han drew specifically for II stix, The Mochi. (Note: Ki also designed the 8Asians.com logo.)

I owe a lot to II stix; I had a regular column called These Voices back in 1999 which contain some of my earliest writing on the web and would contribute to starting a blog. I met fellow columnist Min Jung Kim there, where we were fellow columnists and became bloggers, road trip buddies, 8A writers and friends to this day.

II stix had a TON of content, hundreds of articles and columns. All of the content is archived, and I’m sure Ki will be putting up more new stuff as time goes on; it’ll be interesting to see how much of that content has stood the test of time, especially now that a lot of rabid readers have gone from being crazy college students to “responsible” adults, possible with wives and kids.
