Indexer Notes

Another reprint, this time from "Lion" where the strip was originally called "Britain In Chains" and "The Battle For Britain". Character names have been changed. Victor Gunn becomes Simon Kane in this version, while his assistant Barrell becomes Tubby. The changed names are obviously lettered by a different person, the two lettering styles clash drastically.
