Issue Notes

Paper stock and printing improves for final time. Cover and interior paper more to standards of independent publishing of the time, with slick stock for cover and heavy white paper for interior pages. This was achieved due to grant from the Xeric Foundation.
Final self-published issue. Series continues with Optic Nerve (1995 Series) #1 from Drawn & Quarterly.
