[tiny tear at bottom of front cover, no other significant wear]. (cartoon illustrations) 32-page magazine devoted to comic art. About half this issue is related to Carl Barks: a 1975 interview with him, conducted by Edward Summer; excerpts from several letters written by Barks to various correspondents and fans; several pages of reproductions of Barks cartoons (many of them somewhat racy) from his early career at the Calgary Eye-Opener. Also: "Is War Hell?: The Evolution of an Artist's Viewpoint," about Harvey Kurtzman's war-comic work during the early 1950s; an appreciation of comic-book artist Jesse Marsh, written and lettered by Alex Toth; detailed and erudite reviews of several contemporary comic-book/graphic art publications ("Stan Mack's Real Life Funnies"; several of the "Gen" adventures of Kenji Nakazawa; and "Power Pak Comics" by Aline Kominsky-Crumb).
