The Silver Surfer #2: The Newton edition

Newton Comics' The Silver Surfer #2 is cover-dated October 1975:

The cover is from Marvel Comics' The Silver Surfer #2:

The story contents are as follows:

When Lands the Saucer! [Part 1], originally published in The Silver Surfer #2, October 1968 
Part Two of "When Lands the Saucer!" Let Earth Be The Prize!, originally published in The Silver Surfer #2, December 1968 

The stories appear to be reprinted complete and intact.

This issue includes a Daredevil poster with Newtonese colouring:

This is from the cover of Marvel Comics' Daredevil #50.

As you can see, my copy is missing the Swap Card.

This issue contains the following in-house advertisements for other Newton comics:

The Fantastic Four #8 

Newton Team-Up Annual #1

Dracula #5

This issue includes an advertisement for the Origins of Marvel Comics, a t-shirt offer, two letters pages and a contest with the expiry date 8 December 1975.  

I date this issue to 25 October 1975.
