One thought on “So Who Owns Death TV?

  1. I just got a copy of the second edition of this pamphlet, which is dated here (as in M&M) 1967; however, the Lebel collage in the back is signed and dated “J.J. ’68”. This would suggest it was published later, no? Anyone with Beach/City Lights/printers connections or memories can provide a decisive answer?
