(aka Vol 1, Issue 2)
Squid Grrrl: Corina Frankie
Print run: 300(?), Office Depot
Notes: First appearance of the wildly popular funpage. Glossiest black and white cover we ever had. We’ve since been informed that there is no longer such thing as legal-sized glossy copy paper. Cover price dropped to $1.
This is one of Editor D’s favorite issues. “Primary Pollinator” is a hell-on-wheels story of man-and-vegetable brotherhood that should’ve won a Nebula. That’s not all. “Clone BBQ” and “Cookies”… well, let’s just say it’s worth every penny.
