On sale date based on date given in last panel of the Dick Tracy story in Dick Tracy Comics Monthly #96.
Page 7 of this story was heavily edited. In panel 2, Sticks is apparently holding a club behind his back, but the club has been eliminated from the panel. In panel 3, not only is the club missing, but Mrs. Green has also been edited from the panel. Panel 4 shows only a silhouette lying on the floor. There is no trace of Mrs. Green's body in panels 5 and 6, even thought the dialogue in panel 6 indicates that Dewdrop and Sticks are checking the body. Mrs. Green's body is also absent from panel 3 of page 8. These changes were probably made at the insistence of the Comics Code Authority.
The left column of page 1 is a text summary of the previous issues. The story begins in column 2. There is also a page of ads between pages 1 and 2 of the story and four pages of ads between pages 13 and 14 of the story.
Text recast to take less space on the page in order to make room for Statement of Ownership.
