Total Issues: 86+6+2? = 94?

A humor magazine published by Dell. The fourth issue of the second series, Fall 1953, was SF-oriented, but none of the text features are substantial enough to warrant indexing, although a couple were reprinted in Science Fiction Digest. An Australian edition of this issue is also known to exist.
