Issue Notes

Publication date from Overstreet Price Guide. The inside front page advertisement and the last 3 pages of advertisements match up with those in Personal Love #31 and New Heroic Comics #95, which have a publication date of February 1955, so maybe the Overstreet date is the on sale date.
