Help me zine.

I'm planning to make a set of fanzines for an upcoming zinefest. I've done this once before (made zines for Doctor Who, Pushing Daisies, Discworld and Les Mis) and was very happy with the results. Now I need to pick fandoms for the next set, and I'm paralyzed with indecision.

There are about ten fandoms I'd be willing to choose from (and I keep coming up with more!) but I need to narrow it down to four or five, realistically. I'd love to get the hive mind's opinion on which zines they'd like to see.
Currently under consideration: Buffy, Harry Potter, Avatar: the Last Airbender, the X-Files, Firefly, Pacific Rim, Star Trek, and the Young Wizards books.
I would like to have at least one smaller fandom represented. If there's anything not on this list that you think would make a great zine, I'd love to hear it. If you can think of any really great titles for potential zines, that would help a lot too.
The finished zines will be short, eclectic, and DIY, containing a mix of fanart, fic, meta, and micellanea. I had a great time making the last set, and got some amazing contributors to make some really cool stuff, so I'd like to maximize my chances of succeeding this time around. Thanks!
