No missing frames starting from page 4, but many important frames cut narrower and some onomatopoesia (which were tying one frame to the another) cut on different rows!
Alternatives, : Prob. partly colored (bad colors!).
Alternatives, : Prob. on last four pages used as printing color red, instead of black.
