Indexer Notes

When reprinted in #73, page 3 is removed. This page is where the witch claims Chop Chop is a wizard so it has the effect of Chop Chop seeming to claim he is a wizard out of thin air in the reprint. Also the last panel on page 2 had additional dialogue in the reprint. This dialogue is one of the hillbillies saying "Disguise! Hey! It don't come off! I'm goin' home I'm hungry!".

All Gustavson credits verified and courtesy of Terry Gustafson, son of Paul Gustavson.
