In 1973, Phil Yeh and partner Mark Eliot started their own alternative newspaper called Uncle Jam, which featured a first issue cover by Roberta Gregory, a fellow student at Cal State University Long Beach. The paper featured interviews, full color covers, and articles on many noted comic book and science fiction masters including; Harvey Kurtzman, Jean “Moebius” Giraud, Alfredo Alcala, Wendy Pini, Philip K. Dick, Linda Barry, Sergio Aragones, Kelly Freas, and Rick Griffin. The newspaper became Cobblestone for a few years in the mid 70's and then reverted back to Uncle Jam. Production stopped in 1991 because of the Cartoonists Across America & the World tour. It was brought back as a magazine in 2009.
