Notes

The stories in this issue appear to have been recoloured for this edition. The colours are more muted and pastel than usual, looking almost like they have been done with a felt tip pen. The colours don't have obvious "dots". Despite the spelling of "color" in the title, other words in the issue are Australianised, including "gaol" and "manoeuvre".
