It’s hard to find something interesting to say when a cover is just a repeat of a previous one. The only difference is that MacDonald’s name is now in blue and a different JDM title is advertised on the cover.

Ok, here’s a puzzling point. The similar cover posted previously was used for the 5th or 6th printing in 1977 and carried a cover price of $1.50. In 1980, the 7th printing used the same artwork but the price was bumped to $1.95. By the way, if you have that edition, please send me a scan of its cover; mine is almost unusable. The 8th printing used a leggy woman drawn by William Schmidt (we haven’t seen it here yet) and the price climbed to $2.50. The 9th through 11th printings also used the Schmidt artwork with a $2.95 price. However, today’s cover is also $2.95 but uses the earlier Don Daily artwork. Is this a 12th or later printing that reverted to previous artwork? I haven’t ever seen any JDM do that. If anyone can explain this, I’m all ears.
