Billed as Detroit’s longest-running zine, Stupor is the brainchild of Steve Hughes, who collects stories — “true stories from people Hughes meets, mostly from a barstool, mostly in the Detroit area” — and then collaborates with an artist to bring them to life. The latest issue, Junkyard Farm, illustrated by Alice V. Schneider, gets a release show at Ant Hall this weekend with a special live staged reading of the stories, with a different actor telling the stories as monologues. Saturday’s show is directed by Kaitlyn Valor Bourque, and features actors Myles De Leeuw, Phil Leslie, Kevin Minor, Jared Scott Morin, Devin Rosni, Tiaja Sabrie, and Rashi Sarwar.

Doors at 7 p.m., reading at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16; Ant Hall; 2320 Caniff St., Hamtramck; 313-365-4255; planetant.com. Tickets are $5.
