HISTORICAL FOOTNOTES:
There are four printings of this comic book, all by Rip Off Press. The 1st printing has a $1.00 cover price and the three subsequent printings all have 50-cent cover prices. The quantity of copies for any of the printings is currently unknown. The 1st printing is easily distinguished by the teal blue background on the front cover. The other three printings all have red backgrounds on the front cover.

The 2nd printing can be distinguished from the 3rd and 4th printings by the 50-cent cover price printed in solid black (not outlined in black), by the Rip Off Press logo printed in black and white (instead of red and yellow), and by the lettering in the lower right circle printed in all-red type (instead of read and green). The 3rd and 4th printings can only be distinguished by the information on the inside front cover. Both printings have a 50-cent cover price outlined in black ink, the Rip Off Press logo is yellow and red, and the lettering in the lower right circle is in red and green type. However, the 3rd printing states "Second Printing August 1971" on the inside front cover (as did the actual 2nd printing). The 4th printing does not state this information on the inside front cover.
