This issue?s Jack Kirby cover was a rejected cover for Mister Miracle #10.
Don and Maggie Thompson began their Beautiful Balloons column this issue. It began as just a half-page feature and included reviews of Fontaine Fox?s Toonerville Trolley, The Menomonee Falls Gazette, Pogo: We Have Met the Enemy and He Is Us, and Playboy?s Alden Erikson.
Other recommendations: ?With Russ Myers? Broom Hilda, Garry Trudeau?s Doonesbury is one of the two best strips to come along since The Wizard of Id.?
