Indexer Notes

Story takes place in Murania, but everywhere in the story where the name is lettered, it looks like it's been changed from something else. Unknown at this time if it was changed for this printing or before it was originally published in 1953.

There is also a panel (2nd last panel on page 2) where one character calls another a "pig". This also looks to be re-lettered. Possibly the original had "dog"?
