Issue Notes

The page count [60 pages] is correct. There are four sheets in the front "half" of the book that do not wrap around the rear "half." Note also that Iger returns to indicia as art director and Byrne is now gone.

The on-sale date is from the publication date recorded in the Catalog of Copyright Entries, Part 2, Periodicals, 1943, New Series, Vol. 38, No. 3.
