I bought this magazine through mail order back in 1983 when I was still living in the middle of Montana. It's a commemorative booklet promoting "The Comic Art Show" at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
As I said, I was still in the middle of the wilderness, far away from anyone who considered comics an art and even further away from one of them thar museumy things that I'd only heard of in TV shows.
Needless to say I read this back then with all the importance of any dissertation on art ever written.
I still enjoy it.
