Noggin debuted on October 5, 1990, with V1N1. It was founded by Tom Hunter with the help and inspiration of his friend, Willie Atwell, publisher of the Iowa City Funnies.
Every piece of fiction carried illustrations. Though the absolute page count varied from 12-24, the last page always contained a full-page cartoon by Scott Warren. The pages of Noggin also carried cartoons by editorial cartoonist Joe Sharpnack.
Noggin's controversial third issue  was devoted to opposition to the Gulf War. This coincided with a heavily political time in Iowa City and a march with an alleged 10,000 participants through the streets of Iowa City in protest of George H. W. Bush's Gulf War.
Noggin V1, N4  from March 1991 carried a full-page cartoon called "Ranger Woody" on its back cover. This work by cartoonist Scott Warren proved controversial for its brutal humor. thumb
Noggin V2, N7 from November/December 1991 caused a controversy with its publication of Scott Warren's three page cartoon based on the life and career of serial murderer Ed Gein.
