"Assassin Nation is a zine catering to the countless assassins in our midst. The National Register of Occupation and Employment has reported a recent spike in the hired assassin category, which exposes a growing market for weapons and stealth enhancement manufacturers and retailers, and facilities that provide services to the assassin community. The growing number of assassins deserve a dedicated periodical addressing their needs and concerns, hence the creation of Assassin Nation. Who are the hundreds of thousands of stealthy hired hands? They could be your next door neighbor, your boss, it could be your spouse or partner. It's difficult to know who is working as an assassin, for the assassin is sworn to secrecy, taking an oath of silence upon initiation. So if you are an assassin, you can rest assured knowing that there is a magazine designed for you, with your interests in mind.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
has been an ever present creative force in Detroit since the mid nineties, when he emerged on to the underground electronic music set with paintings that provided a visual counterpart to the Detroit sound that was taking the world by storm. Since those early days Ron's work has expanded in scope and scale; no longer strictly focused on man and his relationship with technology, Zakrin probes the veins of society, and explores the nature of man, love, and loss. Zakrin lives in Detroit Michigan, where he was born and works daily.
Zakrin puts his modified circuitry to work along with vintage analog synthesizers to produce a musical journey through the post apocalypse, gliding seamlessly from electropunk anthems at home both on the dancefloor and behind the wheel, to a more introspective and melodic
reflection of life, love, and loss.
