Pin-up Gallery
4 pages of full-page "pin-up" pictures. 3 of these page feature Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Warlock and Boom Boom. In two of these pages this group is watching television. In the third they are falling through the air in front of a simle psychadelic background. The fourth pin-up page (published in the third position) shows a two-headed, four-armed merged being comprised of Uncle Sam (symbol of the United States) and a bear (symbol of the Soviet Union), each with their finger on a proverbial "buttom" capable of triggering a nuclear war. The style of this image is similar to what one would see in an editorial cartoon. This character (or characters) is featured in the story. The last pin-up page is one in which Sunspot, Warlock, Wolfsbane and Boom Boom are watching TV. The picture is drawn from a perspective inside the television set itself. Beneath the picture is the following copy: "Special thanks to Ben Bagdikian, Noam Chomsky, Marshall McLuhan, Mark Hertsgaard, Walter Lippman and all the other media theorists out there!!
