Issue Notes

First Rocky and His Friends comic.
Writer credit from Keith Scott in his book "The Moose that Roared", though Jerry Bails's Who's Who indicates that Jack Mendelsohn wrote something in this issue. Note the flat style of Rocky's headgear; his goggles protrude in all other comics (not counting reprints).
