Bob Polio photocopied and hand stapled 50 preview copies. 4 stayed with NEC, 18 went to distributors, 1 each to Ben Edlund, George Suarez, and Bob Polio. The remaining 25 were sold in 1996 signed and numbered by Polio and Suarez.
For issue #12 NEC produced four different variant cardstock covers stamped with serial numbers:
Convention Edition (1000 printed) Diamond Edtion (1000 printed) Capital City Edition (1000 printed) Tick Society Edition (2000 printed, must be a MOAV member to get this one)
The picture above is actually of the back covers. The front is the same as regular issue without the logos and a foil stamped tick symbol on chair Tick is sitting on. There is no printing on the inside covers and therefore no indicia.
I don't know why I never joined MOAV to get the last one, dang-it.
