    In #1683, regarding the 10 covers of comics reference material, the Jules Feifer book is listed with original price “unknown.” The copy I own has a price marked of $9.95 (it was then marked down to $4.95 and further to $4 – which is what I purchased it for, way back when). Just thought I’d take the opportunity to share that for your files, and thank you for the enjoyment you provide, month in and month out. Keep up the good work.
