Indexer Notes

Story title taken from the cover.

Alter-Ego #6 (Autumn, 2000) features an article on Mac Raboy by Roger Hill, and on page 12, displays the last page of this story, revealing that the majority of the figures used were "paste-ons" [many of which had fallen off the original art], a tactic often used by Mac Raboy because of his slowness and running up against story deadlines.

Oddity: on page 10, panel 4. Captain Marvel Jr. mentions his heroic name, but does not change back into Freddy Freeman.

Oddity: on page 11, panel 2, Captain Marvel Jr. mentions the name of Captain Marvel, Senior, but does not change back into Freddy Freeman.

The last panel on page 14 gives the title of next issues' story: "Hitler's Headquarters of Horror".
