Notes / Commentary:

The series was initially published with a price of 10¢ per issue. A 5¢ edition was published three years later. The 5¢ edition is identical to the 10¢ edition apart from having "The 5¢ Edition" printed at the top of the cover above the masthead.

LeBlanc examined Nos. 5 and 9. A handwritten note on his listing suggests that a No. 10 exists, but information on the title was not provided.
