Scanned from a coverless copy, so the fc&bc are from HAG, the ifc is from the old fiche, and the ibc is missing.
The comic was very wrinkled.
A freddyfly original!

Comment: Will Eisner gets a lot of excitement into just nine pages, Sally O'Neil is involved in a shoot out, and the Wonder Boy and Merlin stories are both solid. Good clear scans of a great issue.
