No. 4 / Fall 1991

 The earliest SS issue that was not reprinted, No. 4, and upon realizing that I wondered if I'd ever find a copy to reproduce here.   I did happen upon a copy of this and issue No. 5, which a seller on eBay was trying to auction off and yet there were no takers.  When I let the seller know he definitely had a buyer in me, I was dismayed that he made me his offer -- along with tripling the price for each issue!  In the end I lost out on this one, but he did too because I bought No. 5 from someone else.  Fortunately I got a lot of good deals on other SS issues so in the end it all evened out for me, I suppose.  

No. 4 would be the first time the iconic Scarlet Street logo appeared, and the last time the cover would be all in black and white.  Please do enjoy this rarity!
