Ginseng Roots comic books issue 5
Story, Art and Cover by Craig Thompson.

Also learn how the debts of the American Revolution were paid, and how the nation's first multi-millionaire founded his fortune... and the when and why Craig's brother, Phil, started spending his salary on guns instead of comics. 6 inch by 9 inch, 32 pages, full color. Cover price $6.00.
