Notes

The address in this advertisement, 149 Castlereagh St., Sydney, was used by Frew/Tricho and the Magazine Management group of companies. The use of this advertisement in a KG Murray comic was unusual -- generally, the properties of other comic publishers were not advertised in KG Murray publications.
