The Smudge, The whole Smudge, and nothing but The Smudge


     The Smudge is a monthly newspaper offering articles, interviews, comics, and advice from a range of unique thinkers and creators. At a time when many of us have been searching for ways to contribute, we decided we'd use the tool we know best: PRINT. We're not activists, we're not editors, but we have a printer and we know how to use it. So, in the spirit of the underground and alternative presses of the 60's and 70's, we hope to offer a unique voice and a different perspective on the issues and events that affect us all. And hopefully we can squeeze some good comics in there as well.
