Inside front cover. Initially this comic book was brought about because of the horror Zwigoff had experienced after visiting a slaughterhouse. He wanted to come out with a statement against cruelty to animals. Needless to say, the stories that were submitted did not reflect this statement of purpose. As Crumb stated in the Complete Crumb volume nine, Zwigoff relinquished his editorial position and did not want to have anything more to do with the final results.
