The Skeleton was a free independent monthly newspaper published in Chicago, Illinois between 2006 and 2008. It was started by Chicago underground writer Liam Warfield[1] in Pilsen. The compact newspaper released its first issue, #00, on October 27, 2006. Its first anniversary issue was released in October 2007 under a theme of "Failure" and in Fall of 2008, the paper released its final issue under the theme of "Success". Archived by both The Chicago Underground Library[2] and The Chicago Public Library, the paper has been characterized as a small but notable press, having acquired celebrity interviews with academics and artists such as Loren Coleman[3] and Patti Smith while declining from online content and non-local advertising.[4]
