Wraparound cover; faux blurbs on back margin, á la Miller's "Ronin"
The art includes a miniature inset of Parsonavich's art from the "Hams-Tour '86" T-Shirt advertised in the previous issue. It appears here as a poster.

Inside front cover
Clint remembers meeting Randi at a Dead Kennedy's concert in New York during the song "Goons Of Hazard". The song is from their 1985 album "Frankenchrist" and by the time this comic was released their live performance schedule was being derailed by frivolous prosecution tied to that album. Their last live shows were played in early 1986 (followed by a studio album and compilation), so the conversation restricts the event to a period of a few months in late 1985/early 1986.
Chin states that artist Parsonavich's real first name is Patrick, although it is frequently listed elsewhere as Chris (as at the Who's Who of American Comics site, last updated in 2006). Wikipedia currently identifies him as Patrick Parsons working with Chris Walker, but does not cite any source for this information. Chin himself said in an editorial in issue #2, "Parsonavich's first name isn't 'Chris', as has been indicated in Eclipse Comics flyers and in the press. It's simply Parsonavich... one word, four syllables." In the context of the tone of this series it could be presumed that this is self-mythologizing (in line with drawing themselves into the story). It could also be that all of his credits are collective pseudonyms for Parsons and Walker as a team (as in Gemini= Jim Starlin + Al Milgrom).
