First published in 1995, STUPOR is Detroit's longest-running 'zine: "If you have fallen into a Stupor, something is wrong with you. You’re having trouble focusing. You’re drunk or high or just tired as hell. You’re staring off into space. It’s difficult to move your limbs. Your arms are heavy. Your legs are frozen or numb but definitely stuck. Stupor is a zine project by Steve Hughes. It’s dedicated to your inability to move forward or move at all. Each issue collects true stories from people Hughes meets, mostly from a barstool, mostly in the Detroit area. They drink. They talk. Hughes listens, and writes it all wrong. Later, when he’s happy with stories, he gives them to an artist who creates the visuals for each issue."
