We discuss the quantization of two-dimensional (1, 0) superfields and the background field formalism for (1, 0) supergravity. As an application we compute the supergravitational and super-Weyl anomalies of (p, q)-type string actions and determine the corresponding critical dimensions. We also compute the ghost supercurrent anomalies for the general first-order ghost action.
