4to. Stapled wrps., each 14pp.-36pp.

A complete set of this fortnightly comic, designed and published by John Hurford with the help of Jonathan Gems, Paul Sanders and Dave Williams. The first five front covers feature artwork by Hurford, previously a contributor to Oz, IT, Gandalf's Garden and Nasty Tales, whose work features prominently throughout. Other artists include Justin Ward; Matthew Freeth; Antonio Ghura; Robert Crumb ("Mr. Natural" and "Mr. Sketchum"); and a very early, possibly unrecorded, appearance by Alan Moore and Steve Parkhouse in issue #2 (the latter also in #6).

The page count grew and production values improved during the course of the magazine's brief run, with Hurford advertising his posters in its pages, joined latterly by adverts for recording studios, the Marquee club, travel agencies promoting the hippie trail, Virgin Records (Kevin Coyne), and even a full-page corporate ad. for Agfa tapes. Hurford designed the cover for a projected seventh issue, but it never materialised.

Front cover edges of first issue slightly darkened, o/w a Very Good set of a largely forgotten English underground comic (not mentioned by David Huxley in 'Nasty Tales: Sex, Drugs, Rock'n'Roll and Violence in the British Underground').
