The price paste-up is missing. The header banner is a hand-lettered paste-up. The top part of the "T" and the tomahawk art on the logo stat are an origin art replacement. Overall, the cover is in Excellent condition. It is Plexiglas front framed with a stunning decoupage wooden frame created by Dan Makara.
