- This issue contains a letters page, "Strange Mails". Letters are published from Bruce Long, Kenneth Sneyd, Karen Bower, and Bill Homah.
- In his letter, Homah speculates that Stan Lee's real name is Irving Forbush - which is false, as Lee's real name was Stanley Martin Lieber, later legally changed to Lee; Forbush is an inner joke, not a real person, who later became a comical Marvel character. The answer given to Homah is more cryptic, but denies that Lee and Forbush are the same person.
- This issue is reprinted in comics and books, see references for more info.
It is revealed for the first time in this issue that Dum Dum Dugan's real name is Timothy Aloysius Cadwallader Dugan.
