Unknown scanner. Unfortunately it's only marginally better than the small scans we have now, but comparing several pages, I think it is slightly cleaner (i.e. fewer compression artifacts), so I thought it was worth uploading. It also has some curling at the spine that our current version doesn't have, so it's hard to say which scans are better to read. This book, and Smash #18, are still badly in need of better scans.
