Yes, those alerts are great! I was missing issue 4/65 which has the second part of "Earth Defense Squadron" (aka "The Moon Monsters!"). I received an alert from Mandarake and within four days received the item.
Hang in there Jeffbert. Soon who knows you will have all 28 issues and the manga in their original form.--Astrobuddy

No, but so far I have all the ones I want! I know it is important for you to get them all to complete your collection; especially as it is important for your soon to be published tome on all things Astro Boy! I'll be first in line to purchase a copy!--Astrobuddy

So, you have all those with original Atom manga?

I have compared the space broadcasts in the club with the version in Kappa Comics. about 74 panels had been appended to the beginning; also noted that the page with lions was absent from the DH.

Okay I only own 11/64 & 3/65, 4/65 & 5/65! I have noticed that the versions in the reprint series were edited and are different from the original versions. I'm sure this will make for interesting reading in your book.--Astrobuddy

Yes! Both the original Japanese reprints (that is any thing other than the original Shonen manga and the DH series based on the Japanese manga reprint series).--Astrobuddy

09-1964 (2nd issue) had a 'quiz,' actually more of a contest. Various prizes were to be awarded to club members who found errors in this picture:

That explains Atom's deformed right hand, and the geta sandal on his right foot. Also Uran's leg jets (although she actually had them in one episode IIRC)
