Issue Notes

While the indicia publisher is still Helnit, the printing address is Holyoke rather than Helnit's former printers in Meriden, Conn. The indicia is also printed in Holyoke's style rather than Helnit's, and the trade tress of the cover matches the following batch of Holyoke-published issues rather than the previous Helnit run.

Many sources give the volume number for this issue as vol. 2, but indicia scans show that it is in fact vol. 1.
