This issue is a sixty-four page giant–only most of the extra is filler. They could have gotten away with a lot less pages.
The Mr. Monster story is real short (and lame). Gary Davis has a short space alien story showing he’s read some Arthur C. Clarke (it’s long, wordless filler).
Rick Geary’s got a nice two page story, which is filler but really excellent filler.
Then there’s the start of a Trekker serial. It’s incomprehensible if you haven’t read the Trekker series and probably even if you have.
Doug Potter has an excellent story about homelessness.
Oh, I missed Bob Burden’s Mystery Men and Flaming Carrot two page filler.
Then a real Mask story, which seems to be wrapping up. The narrative’s a little pat dramatically, but I’m not sure Badger cared.
Bob the Alien and Mindwalk have stories. Bob‘s hilarious, Mindwalk‘s weak.
Finally, even more filler.
