Publication details

This issue was published in color as a saddle-stitched pamphlet on newsprint. The size was typical of Standard Silver and Modern Age comics and consisted of 36 pages, including ads. The cover was dated July, 1966 and priced at twelve cents (American).

This issue contained eight stories—seven fully illustrated and one in text format. Each of the illustrated stories over one page in length was introduced by Rod Serling as the Narrator.

With this issue, the title began to ship bi-monthly (6 issues per year) rather than the previous quarterly (4 issues per year) rate, although the cover price of twelve cents remained the same.

Another change occurred with this issue in the omission of the line "in cooperation with Golden Press, Inc." in the indicia, listing K.K. Publications, Inc. as the sole publisher.
