Indexer Notes

This reprint has been modified from the original, presumably to meet Comics Code Authority guidelines. 1) Title has been changed from "...to Hell!" to "...to Danger!". 2) on page 3, a caption reading "and then some-body put a bullet in Ned's back" is replaced with "and then a shot!", Ned's speech bubble reading "Uhhh..." has been eliminated. 3) On page 4, the phrase "Rats... you're about to be caged!" has had the word "Rats" eliminated. 4) On page 8, the original has Tanya killing Karabi with a gun in the 3rd panel, the redrawn version has Tanya's arm at her side and a villager drawn in over Karabi so he doesn't look like he's falling over. Tanya's gun has also been eliminated in panel 2, but not in panel 4. 5) On page 9, Tanya's speech bubble stating "Drop him into the quicksand! He'll be swallowed up without a trace" has been eliminated. Also, the stick that Pete Trask is hit with on the back of the head has been redrawn to just being hit with a fist. 6) Also on page 9, the native's "The quicksand will suck him down quickly!" has been replaced with "Come! We've no time to lose!" 7) Throughout the story the very yellow skin-tones of the natives have been re-coloured with more natural ones.
