Indexer Notes

Part 1 of 2. Man-Thing was last seen in Savage Tales #1.

John Romita Pencils credit and Sam Rosen letters from George Olshevsky's Marvel Comics Index #7B. Nick Caputo adds that Romita mainly redrew the woman on pages 13 and 15, and some background art on page 12 and Morrie Kuramoto added/revised some of the lettering on pages 10-16, likely altered in part due to Comics Code restrictions, since the story was originally slated for the first version of Savage Tales #2.
