Comix historian Gary Usher compiled this great index to Artie Romero's Cascade Comix Monthly (a fanzine about underground comix) in 1994. Usher was also the person behind Comix Wave Index 1983-1993, The Brad W. Foster Checklist and similar research publications.

This index covers every interview subject, drawing, advertisement, cover repro and comix creator – basically everything that appeared in all 23 issues of the zine. There are also two appendixes: one for the Cascade staff members and one for publication date / page count of every issue.

Cardstock cover.

Obviously, this one is impossible to attribute an issue "number" to.

A virtual archive of mini-comics, fanzines, small press comics, newave comix and related items. The physical archive, housed at PF headquarters, is being built with personal acquisitions as well as generous donations from supporters. This project is most definitely a work in progress.
