Issue Notes

One of four Love & Rockets reprint paperbacks in this format- the other titles were "Love & Rockets: Short Stories," "The Lost Women and Other Stories" and "The Reticent Heart and Other Stories"

The indicia gives an ISBN for a hardcover edition of this volume. That number, however, is for the first "Complete Jules Feiffer" Fantagraphics volume. No hardcover edition seems to exist for this book.
