Indexer Notes

Reprinted from a version modified from original to meet Comics Code requirements. The text box that appears in the last panel of page five in the version in Black Cat Mystic #62 apparently fell off the original art and ended up covering the lower left corner of the first panel on page three in this printing. (So the story ends with the original ending after all.)
