Indexer Notes

This also appeared in Zap Comix #1 (2nd printings and up only). As stated in this volume of the Complete Crumb Comics, publisher Don Donahue acquired a larger press sometime after the initial print run of Zap. This made possible an increase in the number of pages per issue to be printed. Four additional pages were added to all printings of Zap #1 from the 2nd print onwards.
