    The printing was weak on this original material and it was tweaked as much as possible to make the image stronger. Sadly, these pages are so rare that it was difficult to find a replacement.

    Clarification: “full color,” as seen in most of the comics in this feature, is using all four printing colors at the time – red, yellow, blue, and black. in order to save time and ink, some inside section pages were only printed in one, two, or as with this page three (red, yellow, black) colors.
