Issue Notes

This is an exact reprint of Dennis the Menace Giant (Hallden; Fawcett, 1958 series) #15 (summer 1963), with these exceptions. (1) Numbering on cover (2) Slight changes, such as date and numbering, in indicia (3) Changes to two pages of Sequence 5, The White House. On going upstairs Dennis converses with a Secret Service agent in this issue, rather than encountering the Kennedys. President Kennedy had been killed in the year between the two publications. Lyndon Johnson (in fact President by this time) continues to preside over the Senate in Sequence 6, The Capitol.
