Found this in an old barn edition

Before we begin, I wanted to show an alternate cover for this issue. I always loved when i would find an old comic in an attic or basement. The paper always smelled like old Pulp, and is still one of my favorite stenches to this day!
In a perfect world, I would be exploring an old, dilapidated barn. In an dust there, under a pile of rusted farm equipment, I find a dust covered cedar chest–inside, this beauty, hiding under a dried out mouse nest. The long forgotten Fiends issue #2!!! The “Marge, I think we have dem mice!” edition from 1972! Thought to be gone forever. (as the original run was destroyed by a freak volcano that destroyed the spacious RAT HOUSE studios then, based in Joliet Illinois.)
