Indexer Notes

As stated in the indicia page, the following series of strips originally appeared in "The Village Voice" in a two-tier format. Most of these later appeared in Mr. Natural #3 (Kitchen Sink Press) in a three-tier format. The strips are reprinted here in the latter format.

In these earlier chapters, the Professor's name is spelled "Wanowski." The "i" in the last name becomes a "y" in the weeks that follow.
