Issue Notes

These early issues of BOTW are a smaller 7 inches by 7 inches in size. Rather than reduce the original page size to fit, the pages have been rearranged, using less panels per page, leaving the art large and the page count longer, which explains why the page counts here might not match their original appearances.
