Indexer Notes

Inside front cover sequence with indicia information at bottom of page.

Most of the artwork has been left untouched as compared to the original 1962 version, though there are a few touch-ups. The main difference being the addition of cloud-like "flashback" panel borders and a small panel at the top of the page with accompanying story logo. The dialogue is in word balloons rather than the original's captions. All of this also applies to this book's other reprinted 1962 stories.
