  • Chris Flewitt’s story (set in a local supermarket) has a minor character named Cally. Flewitt would later start to submit strips under the pseudonym Cally Stapleton. The name of his publishing imprint, Help! Shark, also appears on the last page.
  • Glenn Dakin’s illo was taken from a letter he sent to me.
