Complete! First 48-page issue [52 with covers], as Fantomah has gone to join her ancestors.
The comic was trimmed and bound at one time, so the borders are very thin, and damaged along the binding-edge.
The cover was badly damaged, so the fc is from HAG, and the ibc+bc are copied from the Jumbo 62 upload.
A freddyfly original production!
