Issue Notes

Newsstand edition, which has an additional outer wrap to obscure the original "middle finger" cover that might be considered objectionable for newsstand distribution. This edition is therefore 64 pages rather than the direct edition which is 60 pages. Drawn Out Dramas by Sergio Aragones scattered in the margins throughout the issue.
