Issue Notes

Underground Comix are known for using different prices, covers (art or color variations) and interior content to distinguish different printings.
1st print August 1969 has 0.50 USD cover price. Has rough trimming.

In 1972 Print Mint took over production, moving the actual printing to a commercial printing plant.
2nd print June 1972 has 0.50 USD cover price. No rough triming.
3rd print 1973 has 0.50 USD cover price. No rough trimming. Said to be indistinguishable from 2nd print.
4th print 1976 has 0.75 USD cover price.

Here's one of the rare, hand-assembled copies of this notorious comic, the last in the short series of three printed by the original publisher, Don Donahue. People were supplied with stacks of covers and interior pages and given a stapler, and they went at it by hand. The final step in the process was to stack the comics in a paper cutter and trim the edges. When the books reached the retailer, it was common practice to re-sticker the price to 75 cents or more.
