Issue 2 featured the short fiction piece, "One Curse Removed" by Jack Jackson; and photographs of Jonathan Frid at Deltacon II in 1986 by Sharida Rizzuto.

Issue 3 appeared in 1984, and featured an interview with actor Jonathan Frid by Ken Friedmann; and the short fiction piece "The Life of an Indentured Servant" by Sidney J.Dragon.

Issue 5 included the article "Getting Acquainted With Barnabas" by Sharida Rizzuto; the poem The Playroom by Ken Friedman, with accompanying illustration of Quentin, David and Amy; and photographs of locations in the television show by Ken Friedman.
