The indicia states: "Chapter 1 through 6 appeared, in a somewhat different form, in Raw magazine between 1980 and 1985." Notwithstanding that statement, the changes for the most part were extremely minor, with only the occasional tweaked panel. For the most part the stories are as shown in the original, though here they are printed somewhat larger. Every story here also includes a reprint of the front cover to the original RAW Maus pamphlet insert, but not the back cover.
