Morgenmuffel is an autobiographical zine consisting mainly of cartoons written and drawn by Isy from Brighton, UK. Tales told range from walking over hills to street demonstrations, volunteering in an anarchist social centre to dealing with co-operative living, with the occasional list, zine review, or article thrown in.
Morgenmuffel also used to be a small zine distro but this side of things has folded, due to lots of lunching it out, unfortunately.
Morgenmuffel issues 1 (which was in German) to 14 are not available anymore through Morgenmuffel directly, though other distros may still have copies here or there.
Active Distribution printed a collection/'best of' from issues nos. 2-11, which is currently out of print but may be reprinted in future.
The latest issue is No. 15, from October 2006. Stories include travels through Eastern Europe, a Women's Gathering in Spain and the Climate Camp up North last summer. Cost: 60p plus stamp in the UK, 2 euros from mainland Europe or 3 US dollars from overseas.
A zine about women's self defence - issue No. 1 has been printed in December 2006. This zine is a collaboration between Isy and two other women involved in teaching women's self defence and has articles, rants and personal stories of sucessful self defence. Cost: £1.50 incl. postage in the UK
