Only Printing / October 1973 / 36 pages / The Print Mint
_
Two years after the previous issue, #4 finally shows up from The Print Mint. Unfortunately, it's no classic, but there's still plenty of decent stuff, including a slew of one and two-pagers. The highlight is "Dogbite Magazine," in which Jim Osborne, Spain, Roger Brand, Kim Deitch, Bill Griffith, Jay Lynch, Rory Hayes, Jay Kinney and others contribute a single panel or a page about voracious doggies.
