Indexer Notes

A 'new' splash page consists of some explanatory text and some previously-seen panels and vignettes. Panels 4 & 6 from page nine of the original story are reprinted again to assist readers who may not have read the previous issue. The Grey Gargoyle vignette comes from panel 8, page 8 of Journey Into Mystery #107 (August 1964). The Loki vignette is reprinted from panel 2, page 4 of Journey Into Mystery #94 (July 1963).
