Indexer Notes

Modified version of the story originally published in Warren's 1984 issue #7. Page 1 is totally different (so the unofficial title from the first line of dialog used here will not be found in the original). Page 9 of the original story has been redrawn and expanded into two pages. Selected panels of the story have been redrawn and there are extensive changes to the inking, graytones, dialog and lettering (hand lettered here versus typeset in the original).

Indexer Notes

Thorne's thoughts on Ghita are accompanied by photographs of models acting as his characters and more of his own illustrations. Among these illustrations is the artwork that was used on page 1 of the original Warren story in 1984 issue #7 that was replaced with new artwork in that story for this reprinting.
