Indexer Notes

On back cover of comic. Original was signed, but signature has been eliminated from reprint. Also text has been changed to reference Super Comics and the last bit of the speech bubble stating to get them "before they're all gone" has been eliminated. Exactly the same as back cover of Black Hood #[nn]
