Indexer Notes

Story edited to correct 2 minor errors from the original printing (though apparently introducing another):

Page 3, panel 1 in original: "We can land the plane on its helicopters right on the ship's deck!"
in reprint: "A special copper device will enable us to land on the ship's deck!" Note that "COPPER" is probably supposed to be either "CHOPPER" or "'COPTER".

Page 5, panel 1 in original: "You're part of an international theft-ring, and you'll either talk, or go to prison!"
in reprint: "You're part of an international theft-ring, and you'd better start talking!"
