Plot elements in common with T-327 "I Was Trapped by the Things on Easter Island!" in Tales to Astonish #5 (September, 1959); V-15 "Here Comes ... Thorr the Unbelievable" in Tales to Astonish #16 (February 1961); and V-560 "Back from the Dead!" (6 pp.) in Tales of Suspense #28 (April 1962). The stone heads (moai) on Easter Island (Rapa Nui) are actually huge aliens waiting patiently for their comrades to return.

Indexer Notes

The narrator of the story is a writer for "these weird books." In the penultimate panel, he stands in a doorway, on the glass of which we can make out "St[an] Le[e] Edi[tor]." The man at the desk says, "Great stuff! Here's your dough! Now go home an' write some more stories!" The writer replies, "Thanks, Stan! I'll be back tomorrow with another one!"
