Saddle stapled, wraps. Page numbers do not include covers.
There is a printing error: pp.13-16 from “The Garden of Fear” were printed as pp.33-36 from “Synthetic”, so the four pages from former story are missing.
According to Miller/Contento, “this issue came out with two different covers, one by F.V.C. overprinted to 25¢.” (1) a white and green design (2) an orange with green design
