Indexer Notes

Only the first 6 pages of this story were reprinted, followed by the last 2 pages of "Bandits of the Starways", which preceded it in the original issue. Also it lists the letterer as typeset, but this appears to be hand lettered using the Leroy Lettering template. This book credits this story solely to Wally Wood.

Indexer Notes

By error, these last 2 pages of "Bandits of the Starways" are reprinted in place of the last page of "Opium Smugglers of Venus".
