Indexer Notes

This is a reprint of the first Thor story published by Marvel. The original story was divided into three parts with parts two and three titled "The Power of Thor!" (5 pp) and "Thor the Mighty Strikes Back!"(3 pp). In this reprint these two chapter headings have been edited out so that this tale is presented as a single 13 page story.
