Does your copy state "copyright 1979" on page 2? I have a copy of that seems identical but states "copyright 1978" on page 2. It was however, obviously released later since the artwork is dated 1979 (pages 4 and 20).

I don't know. The one I have is in shrink. The date came from the artwork on the cover.

I'll delete my entry so you can present this item properly. Sound good?

just a further note on the above. wile i had the cover out, i checked the pic very closely....looked at the name/date at the bottom right with a magnifying glass. you know the "9" actually does look like an 8 that has been written with a thickish pen and the ink has blotched slightly....

check it yourself - what do you think?

If you could just update the copyright to "1978 but interior art (pages 4, 6 20) are 1979" that should be good. I have an open copy of that print as well.

Hey Al, yes the cover date could either be an "78" or "79" but check out the interior images on pages 4, 6, 20. These ones are very clearly "79".
