Indexer Notes

A new text box in the story's final panel makes reference to Don Blake's comment about making news and draws the reader's attention to the news feature on the following page.

The original story was divided into two parts: an unmarked first part (5 pp) and part two - "Flight to the Future" (8 pp). In this reprinted version, the part two "Flight to the Future" title has been removed and the story is presented as a single 13 pp chapter.

Indexer Notes

A 'new' splash page recaps the events of last issue using previously reprinted panels in wobbly 'flashback' borders. These panels come from page 10 (panels 5 - 6) and page 11 (panels 4 - 5) of the original story. The text in the story's final panel has been slightly altered to remove the reference to X-Men #3.
