Issue Notes

The covers of issues 5 and 6 appear to have been reversed. Issue 5 advertises "The Plot", which appears in issue 6 and has the words "Space Ace No. 6." on the first page of the lead story. Issue 6 advertises "The Hollow World", which is in issue 5. That story similarly has the words "Space Ace No. 5" on the first page. The cover of issue 6 promotes a 'Flash, Dog Deputy' story that is only in issue 5.
