Indexer Notes

A peaceful alien offering a gift pays tribute to THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (1951), while an alien invasion which turns out to be a nightmare-- which starts all over again at the end of the story-- pays tribute to INVADERS FROM MARS (1953).

Series continues in NICK FURY, AGENT OF SHIELD #1 (June 1968).
