The thing most people fail to understand about zines is that it is more than a passing trend. Instead, it is a means of self-expression for individuals and groups who feel that they are marginalized and sidelined by society.
That is why it is vital for people working on a zine to know exactly what they want to say. Your zine is unique precisely because it is your own. It is your responsibility then to not break under pressure and say what it is you want to say.
