Indexer Notes

Aline's editorial and masthead design is accompanied by letters from: Terry Boyce; Brodie Woodworth (Falls Church, VA); R. Heale (Framington, NY); Nubile Young Mail Heterosexuals Club (Pailville, OH); Twixt Walker (Ring O'Hell, Alaska).

In her letter Boyce details her conversion to Christianity and renounces all her previous artwork. She also states that she burned all her artwork made from 1980-88. Included on the page are a small-size panel from Weirdo and a Christian-themed illustration of hers that quotes "Romans 6:23."
