Written and distributed by Frampton Jones, The Hopeless Vendetta is a free press, producing regular news for the inhabitants of Hopeless, Maine. Residents wishing to submit news should speak to the editor when he is out delivering. Adverts are always welcome.

Subscribers are reminded to bring their papers back for recycling and not to use them as toilet paper.
Frampton Jones and the Hopeless Vendetta (along with other citizens of Hopeless) feature in the graphic novel series Hopeless Maine, published by Sloth Comics. When the first book was going up as a comic, the Vendetta published inline with events in the book. As the Vendetta published weekly, while the comic updated at a rate of two pages a week with some scenes lasting longer than that, time could be a bit bendy on occasion.
It’s workable to read older installments without reference to the books but for best effect, read both.
The Vendetta has risen again to be the voice of the Hopeless citizens, showcasing art, natural history, gossip, music, and news. Please note that ‘I think I saw something funny in the woods’ is not news.
