The central story in this book (as well as the 2nd issue that followed three years later) is "The Frogman", in which a mysterious man in a diving suit floats into a young woman's life on a recurring basis. Lane also provides a terrific homage to the Marx Brothers.

. Keith Green published the 2nd printing of this book at the same time he published Middle Class Fantasies #2 in 1976.
