Issue Notes

The issue is actually labelled volume II rather than issue 2 on the cover and in the indicia. This was published in 1975, while Print Mint had published issue 3 in 1973. The bottom of each page also features cartoons drawn by Shelton in the early 1960s.

Thanks for Vance Bass and his "Hog of Steel" archive for some of the reprint credit information.
