Western premieres the Whitman label for bagged comics sold in non-newsstand retail outlets. The Three Stooges #s 53 - 55 were published in both Gold Key and Whitman versions.

The latter part of # 55's print run was given a temporary price increase to $0.20. A permanent increase did not occur until early 1973 (effective with The Little Stooges # 4). Due to this pricing anomaly, # 55 exists in three cover versions: Gold Key $0.15, Gold Key $0.20, and Whitman $0.15.
