The Fox River Patriot was an alternative newspaper that
circulated in central Wisconsin, co-founded by Denis
Kitchen and Mike Jacobi, two of the co-founders of an
earlier Madison/Milwaukee-based underground newspaper, The
Bugle-American. Both papers were deliberately given
"square" names in an effort to reach more mainstream
midwestern readers (this first cover indicates that old
ladies, farmers and hip cows were the primary audience).
Back issues of the papers tend to be sought by comics
collectors (because contributions by various cartoonists
appeared no where else) or nostalgic and history-minded
Wisconsinites. Other selected back issues of The Patriot
and The Bugle are available in this web store. Just type
Patriot or Bugle or another key word in our search bar. We
also have other issues not listed in the web store, so
inquire if you seek issues not offered here.
