Indexer Notes

First panel of the story is a summary of what has gone before.

Page 4 - Caption was a Dick Tracy logo in Dick Tracy Comics Monthly #78.

Page 9, panel 7 - Black plate edited to remove corpse in create, but the outline still shows because the blue
plate was not changed.

Page 10, panel 11 - Black plate edited to remove corpse's head, but there is still a blob of white to
indicate where it was in the panel.

Page 14, panel 9 - Girl has been removed from panel. Looks like Spinner is swinging at someone off-panel.

Page 16, panel 6 - Rope removed from girl's wrists and Spinner's hand redrawn.

Page 16. panel 8 - Artwork replaced with silhouettes of Spinner and Marge. Original shows Spinner slapping
Marge, who is bound in a chair.

Page 16, Panel 9 - Black plate edited to remove figure of Marge bound in a chair. Color plates not edited,
and figure of Marge bound in the chair prints as blobs of color.

Page 16, panel 10 - Only Spinner's hand is showing. The original shows Spinner hitting Marge in the face
with a record and record shattering.

Page 17, panel 6 - Original panel has been replaced with a descriptive caption.

Page 17, panel 12 - Dialogue rewritten to remove reference to Spinner's beating of Marge.

Page 18, panel 2 - Dialogue rewritten to remove reference to beating.

Page 18, panel 5 - Dialogue rewritten to remove reference to beating.

Page 20, panel 10 - Dialogue probably should have been changed since it has a veiled reference to Marge
being beaten by Spinner.
