    65. Bugle-American (1975).

    This alternative weekly newspaper was headquartered in Milwaukee and distributed throughout Wisconsin for eight years (1970-78). It billed itself as a "hybrid" between the establishment Milwaukee Journal and its more radical ("Off the pigs!") underground rival Kaleidoscope. Denis Kitchen co-founded the paper with four friends. Its tongue-in-cheek name was inspired by the fictional newspaper published by Spider-Man's nemesis J. Jonah Jameson. Kitchen art directed The Bugle for its first year or so, contributed a weeekly comic strip and created many color covers. A popular column was called "Toads in the Outhouse," explaining why a warty toad represents The Bugle in this promotional button drawn by Kitchen. Its long-reaching journalistic tongue is shown snaring such targets as "Firebug" (The Bugle office was firebombed), "Graft, Corruption, Evil" and "Injustice."

    2.25 inch diameter. $4.00

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
