Issue Notes

Indicia: HARVEY POP COMICS: ROCK HAPPENING, NOVEMBER 1969, VOL. 1, NO. 2, IS PUBLISHED BI-MONTHLY by HARVEY PUBLICATIONS, INC., Sparta, Illinois. Editorial, Advertising and Executive Offices, 1860 Broadway, New York, 10023, N.Y. President Alfred Harvey; Vice-President and Editor, Leon Harvey; Vice-President and Business Manager, Robert B. Harvey. Application for second class entry pending at Sparta, Illinois, under the act of March 3, 1879. Single copies 25c, 35c in Canada. Copyright © Harvey Features Syndicate, 1969. All rights reserved. Printed in the U.S.A. This periodical may not be sold except by authorized dealers and is sold subject to the conditions that it shall not be sold or distributed with any part of its cover or markings removed, nor in a mutilated condition, nor affixed to, nor as part of any advertising, literary or pictorial matter whatsoever.

This issue is a tie-in with the ongoing BUNNY series published by Harvey from 1966-1971 (with a belated final issue appearing five years later). The house ads and fan club pages are identical to those published in BUNNY. Hy Eisman was credited with the art in BUNNY. Although Bunny Ball is a featured character, ROCK HAPPENING highlights the fictional rock groups that were supporting characters in the BUNNY series -- The Soular System (loosely based on The 5th Dimension and Sly And The Family Stone), The Beagles (The Beatles), and The Marmalade Mirage (based on The Mamas And The Papas).

There is a cameo appearance by real-life disc jockey Hal Jackson (November 3, 1914-May 23, 2012), who broke color barriers in American radio broadcasting. Unfortunately, even though identified by name, Hal Jackson is colored as a Caucasian man in the panels he appears in.
