Indexer Notes

Per Nick Caputo, the cover is a greatly revised version of Mystic #41 (Marvel, 1951 series) November 1955, incorporating Burgos' backgrounds and adding two figures, with new artwork likely by Wilson and Esposito, with further corrections by Marie Severin. Previous indexer credited Win Mortimer with pencils and inks.
