Thrift Store Find: Adam-12 #4

I actually broke down and bought this very worn copy of Adam-12 #4 (August 1974) published by Gold Key for a buck and a half last week at a local thrift store. The cover is barely hanging on and has some pieces missing. Of course, the pages are really yellow from age so I did some photo editing magic to whiten them but at least there none of them are torn. This series was based on the Adam-12 tv series starring Martin Milner as officer Peter 'Pete' Malloy and Kent McCord as rookie officer James 'Jim' Reed. This issue has two stories: "Gang War" and "Heat Wave".
