Also, 1st printing (I think) of the #1 issue of EC-fanzine Squa Tront.

Looks to be a 2nd print.  First print has the staples "side stapled", i.e. punched onto the edge of the spine on and through the front cover.  Second print has the  staples "saddle stitched" (the way all comics are currently issued) like yours.

Ah! Thank you. I knew there was a reason I had nagging doubt. Wishful thinking, I was.

Used to like reading,  Cartoons🚗🚕🚙🏎🚘

Me too. Editorially, the magazine was not very cohesive, but the stories were fun. They had a section of reader-submitted drawings, and I really wanted to draw a cool car and send it in and get published. I drew a lot of cars, but never got organized enough to mail in a submission. I used to pore over the drawings that other people sent in, and really study the way they drew the tires and other parts. I was really fascinated by all the different shapes and approaches that were possible, in designing, shading, texturing the chrome, etc. Man, I can open up one of those magazines and it like a time machine that takes me back to my 10-year-old self, where all of a sudden I am in my childhood home and my dad is in the next room making me a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich, and the TV is playing a Sid & Marty Krofft show and I'm reading CARtoons magazine and trying to draw the coolest car in the world.
