Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The book includes a disclaimer acknowledging the presence of racial caricatures in the strips and states that they are "reprinted without alteration for historical reference".
  • The first edition of this volume contained a printing error in which 2 daily strips were duplicated and 2 strips were omitted. The missing strips (from June 24th, 1944 and May 24, 1945) were included in Volume 10. This error was corrected in later printings.
