Indexer Notes

Story continues on inside back cover in black and white and concludes on the back cover in color. Last panel is Dell's "A Pledge to Parents". Part two of a two-part story. While the first part is fairly faithful to the original novel, the second part is an original story involving the book's characters, but not following the original plot at all.
