Indexer Notes

Since the splash page was used as the cover, a new splash was drawn with art possibly by Buckler/Esposito. The title was also changed from the original, "When The Thing Runs Amok" to avoid confusion with their popular character. Art and title info per Nick Caputo. Script added by Bob Bailey, 12 August 2005 (Per Sandell ed.)
