Primarily an adzine at this time with a few columns and features sprinkled throughout.

The cover is a painting by DON NEWTON. On page 4 is a full-page ad for the NEWTON PORTFOLIO, featuring "a collection of some of the best Don Newton art to appear during the last five years."

On page 61 JERRY BAILS has a "special message to all our friends in comics fandom" in which he states, "As many of you may know, we are building a Microfilm Library of the field of Comic Book Art. We already have on film nearly 2500 issues from the Golden Age, including complete runs of most DC, Fawcett and Timely titles...." [WOW! Whatever became of this endeavor and wouldn't it be wonderful to see it released on DVD a la the Complete New Yorker, Rolling Stone Cover to Cover, et al.???]

Synopsis:
RAYMOND MILLER receives questions from readers, including future writer DAVID MICHELINE [sic], dealer JOHN IAVARONE and from North Hollywood, California, WALTER KOENIG, who asks:
Q. I know that my picture appeared on the cover of STAR TREK COMICS #8 Sept. 1970, but can you tell me whether the character I played on the TV series (ENSIGN CHEKOV) ever appeared in the drawings for the comic book stories themselves?
A. The answer comes from Dave Hartman: I have all 14 issues of STAR TREK Comics and the first and only place ENSIGN CHEKOV appeared was on the cover of #8.

Notes:
This seven-page installment opens with a full-page illo of Cap and Bucky by MACHLAN. It also includes a piece on storing comics in binders by SETH ORLOW; Part Three of NEIL GLOSSOP's STRANGE ADVENTURES INDEX covering issues 57-99, and a racy HENCEY illustration of the X-Men's Marvel Girl with her costume opened, baring her breasts, as The Beast leaps at her with his tongue hanging out (and who can blame him?).
