The limited edition of issue issue 5 does not contain any new material. It repeats the stories contained in the regular print. However, there is a nude centerfold featuring Dawn which does not exist in the regular print. There is also a signature and the book is numbered 1002 of 1500 on a revised inside front cover.

Special Note:

CFD Productions offered a "Church of Dawn" membership in the early nineties. Solicitations for the membership were printed in the CFD Productions books. The kits were delayed for a period, given issues with the quality of the pins that were to accompany the kits. There were different versions of the kits, but as a whole they contained newsletters, prints, sheets offering Cry for Dawn comics and merchandise, the pins, a welcome letter, and stickers. Later versions contained the limited edition copy of issue number 8. The first 1,000 kits contained a special print set that was signed and numbered. Some kits also had an apology letter with artwork from Linsner about the kit shipping delay. Also, membership cards were sent in a limited number, prompting many to question if they were part of the kits. Linsner mocked this himself with a piece of art that he once posted on The below image is that piece of art showing Dawn herself holding a Church of Dawn membership card and explaining that "Yeah, I never got mine either."

The reverse image is of my personal copy of the Church of Dawn Membership Binder. My copy has all of the regular items, the limited edition copy of issue 8, the apology letter and the limited edition print set that is signed and numbered. My kit also has an authentic-signed membership card. Sorry Dawn!
