Notes

It isn't clear what this advertisement is promoting as Murray didn't have a regular Flash series at this time. The last last issue of The Flash Album was late 1979. Flash stories did appear in some issues of Super Action Album and Super Heroes Album at this time.


Notes

Advertisements are on pages 47-50 (interrupting Sequence 2) and page 96. Pages 47-50 are the contest mentioned on cover.

This and all subsequent issues of this title were classified as unrestricted in Government Gazette of the State of New South Wales (Sydney), Friday 19 September 1980 (#136).
