 Underground comix - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Underground comics (or comix) are self-published or small press comic books that sprang up in the US in the late 1960s.
Underground comix reflect the concerns of the 1960s counterculture: experimentation in all things, drug-altered states of mind, rejection of sexual taboos, ridicule of "the establishment." The spelling 'comix' was established to differentiate these publications from mainstream 'comics'.
Although many of the underground artists continued to produce work, the underground comix movement is considered by most historians to have ended by 1980, to be replaced by a rise in independent, non-Comics Code compliant publishing companies in the 1980s and the resulting increase in acceptance of adult-oriented comic books (see alternative comics).

 Press: Underground   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Most of “Underground” takes place in a cellar, where a small group of people huddle to wait out a war that began in 1941 with the German bombing of Belgrade.
A microcosm of the country itself, the people in the cellar are fed a steady diet of fear and hatred until they’re ready to lead the next war.
“Underground” is anything but subtle; Kusturica spoon-feeds the audience his points, as when Marko tells Natalija, “We’re all crazy, we just haven’t been diagnosed yet.” Yet by the time we get to the film’s devastatingly simple conclusion, we’re moved almost beyond tears.

 PRESS :: Underground Zero
Every "new" release was, in fact, filmed before September, and that has made for some disconcerting moments in theaters: The World Trade Center appears onscreen, and for five or 10 seconds the audience forgets the movie it's watching and tries to get over the jolt of shock and grief.
Think of Underground Zero as the bridge between the movies in theaters today and the movies we'll be seeing a year from now.
Underground Zero is a chance for audiences and, in a sense, for the art to take some time to breathe, to pause, acknowledge the tragedy and mourn.

 Underground Press in Michigan
The underground press in Michigan rose and declined in a very short time, but for a decade or so, beginning with the founding of The Fifth Estate in 1965, dozens of underground papers were published in virtually every major city in Michigan.
During that turbulent period, the underground press was in the vanguard of public opinion on many of the issues that seemed to threaten the social fabric of the country: Vietnam, drugs, women's liberation, sexual freedom, high school students' rights.
Coverage of these issues in the underground press reflected and influenced the opinions and activities of college and high school students and young workers, a segment of society that had previously been ignored by the establishment media.

 Alternative press Summary
The epithet "underground," however, was largely self-assumed and unmerited, since use of the police power of the state to suppress their publication was seldom if ever threatened, let alone exerted.
Technically a part of the Alternative Press, and definitely one of the purest expressions of the counter-culture Zeitgeist, the underground comic book is actually a separate phenomenon.
It remains to be seen whether the most lasting legacy of the Alternative Press, the disabling of any governing system of courtesy or restraint in public discourse, will turn out to have hastened the end of a nightmare or the beginning of one.

 The Underground Press Fights for an Audience
But publishing an underground newspaper was both illegal and logistically impossible, given the government's control of all aspects of daily life and the scarcity of basic supplies.
The charges are ironic: The truth, as Rivero says, is that "members of the independent press spend the majority of each month without enough money to eat."

 Polish Underground Press on Warsaw Ghetto Resistance
The resistance of the Jews at the time of the final liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto was not, as some of the Underground press reported, collective resistance indicating a certain change in the attitude of the remaining Jews.
There were Communist printing presses for a long time in the ghetto, there were arms depots and Communist staff groups, and from there Soviet officers directed diversionary actions.
In view of this fact, we may evaluate the Jewish resistance as a positive element, for it caused the premature liquidation of one of the armed positions of the Communists....

 My Odyssey Through the Underground Press by Michael Kindman
Kindman was the founder, in December 1965, of The Paper, East Lansing, Michigan's first underground paper and one of the first five members of Underground Press Syndicate.
In early 1968 he joined the staff of Avatar, in Boston, unaware that the large, experimental commune that controlled the paper was a charismatic cult centered on a former-musician-turned-guru named Mel Lyman, whose psychic hold over his followers was then being strengthened and intensified by means of various confrontations and loyalty tests.
In between and afterwords, his first agonizing efforts at coming out; his long humiliating entrapment in Mel Lyman's fascistic Avatar cult in Boston and elsewhere; his career as a home-remodeling contractor; and his fining liberation in the Men's Movement and with the Radical Faeries are dealt with in passionate and often poignant detail.

It would be easy to dismiss the underground press corps of the sixties as a gang of wild-eyed journalistic guerrillas.

Zines and other underground material are generally hard to find or just plain unavailable in stores.

It was once widely decried (in its own letters section, on the Usenet group alt.zines, and elsewhere) for running gratuitously negative reviews (particularly from departed contributor Joe Gallo), but is now less controversial.
