Indexer Notes

Continues from last issue. Printed between the pages of the Thor story. This page is split with an advertisement. This story is a reasonably accurate fictionalised account of the destruction of the Dresden-Class Light Cruiser SMS Emden in November 1914. In reality the Emden's second-in-command was Captain-Lieutenant Helmut von Mücke. Though his name is incorrect, he did survive his ship's destruction while commanding a landing party, as depicted.

Indexer Notes

This story is loosely based on the legend of Balder's death, though without the deadly mistletoe arrow shot by the blind god Hod. Job number from Tom Lammers and Ger Apeldoorn via the Atlas/Timely discussion group.
