Won-Tolla collaborated with Bombay Underground to setup the Bombay Zine Fest and popups across Mumbai. Bombay’s First Zine Fest was a celebration of self-published and DIY comics and literature. On showcase was independently published literature, comic books, poetry, journalism, and drawings. 

“Through an exchange of ideas, energy, skill sets, discussions and workshops, the Bombay Zine Fest hopes — to foster an only-slightly- competitive, queer-friendly, ethnic-rich environment of creation in written, zine-ic form ; and to nourish the expansion of zine culture in Bombay and other cities where we take it to.” – Vision Statement by Bombay Underground.

The Bombay Underground Zine library at Bandra Reclamation was the main venue. A wide collection of over 120+ zines, homegrown in India as well as from International artits and collectives were featured at the Fest.
