Indexer Notes

The title reference to "Reds" was changed to "In Chains" by the UK editors who preferred to steer clear of any political commentary. One small text caption has been added to the story's final panel saying, "The end -- but only till next Saturday."

Indexer Notes

Page 1 of this reprinted segment (i.e. page 8 of the original) has been altered. A title has been added along with some new text recapping the story so far. The panels have been rearranged and resized. Panel 6 has been omitted; The UK editors removed all references to "Red" and the implication of the Communist threat, hence The Red Barbarian is referred to, throughout the story as "The Barbarian"; A new text box at the end of the story tells us that Kala, - an evil queen whose beauty is matched only by her deadliness - is lined up for next week's issue. Readers are urged not to miss out!
