Indexer Notes

Originally titled "Head Comix." Besides being reformatted to stretch out over two pages, the story has four panels missing from its original version. The panels in question featured the "Av 'n' Gar" characters accosting a woman in a sexually explicit manner. All future reprints published the story intact.
