There were two printings of Infinity #2, with different pages of art by Dan Adkins and Gray Morrow. The first printing had heavy, glossy covers, and the second printing had a mat finish cover.
There is no date on either printing, but the ad included here states that Infinity #2 was published in 1971. The ad also states that one of the new pieces of art would be by Clyde Caldwell, but no Caldwell art appears in either printing.
Features interviews with Mike Kaluta, Steve Harper.
A typo in the indicia numbers this issue as #4, but an ad that appeared in RBCC #79 [see images] identifies this third issue as #3. This was the third and final issue.
