Indexer Notes

Story is divided into two chapters of 6.67 and 8.67 pages.

The best two reader-submitted explanations for this story would each win one chapter of the original art.

Art identification is misidentified as being by George Roussos in an Oddball Comics column written by Scott Shaw dated September 8, 2003. But the story is signed on the splash page as "MESKIN." Script credit from Bob Hughes. Uses Dave Wood's trademarked sound effect "AAAARROOOO."
