The classic 16-year-old cut-and-paste zine has been best-ofed, featuring 14 issues assembled by artists. It’s a super cool concept, and I love that even as the zine got fancy, Hughes continued to distribute it for a dollar.
In each issue Hughes tells one or more stories that he has been told or overheard. Taking place mostly in Detroit and New Orleans, the tales are often down-and-out and beer-soaked. The title is Stupor, so it’s not as if you weren’t warned.
Special for the librarians: the first issue in the treasury, “Cigarettes and Crack and Jerry’s Liver” designed by artist Gina Reichert offers a keyword index for each story.
