Zo-Zo was a high school underground newspaper/zine published from 1985-1987, at Hoffman Estates High School in Hoffman Estates, IL.

Zo-Zo was founded and originally co-edited by John Porcellino along with John Jakubowski, John Lyons, Fred Heuschel, Donal Ogilvie, and Jeff Jenke-- all seniors, and all members of the punk-noise band Bryce Hammer.

Zo-Zo was typical of its kind, publishing music reviews, teenage rants, funny pictures, comics, and cut and paste anarchy. Also typically, it attracted the wrath of school administrators, who tried to prevent its distribution on school grounds.

When the original group of editors graduated from HEHS in 1986, the zine was continued by a new group of students, chiefly Kristi Jacobek and Todd Rittmann, who continued to publish the second volume throughout the 1986-87 school year.

The title Zo-Zo is "ONION spelled sideways," as demonstrated on the long-running Chicago children's program The Ray Rayner Show.
