'''Mike Gunderloy''' founded [[Factsheet Five]] in 1982 and is generally credited as the person most responsible for the [[zine]] explosion that followed in the next 15 years. Today on his personal website, he calls Factsheet Five "the stupidest time-saving idea I ever had," somewhat in jest. Under Gunderloy's control, it grew from a two-page photocopied sheet to a regularly published zine packed full of reviews each issue. At first it reviewed everything under the sun, but soon F5 became focused on zines and the small press. With this transformation and development, Factsheet Five became the first major [[review zine]].
