Issue Notes

In its original run, page 5 of this comic story contained the racial slur "Kike" which Comicraft blamed on a letterer misreading a handwritten correction in the script; Marvel re-called the offending copies and re-issued the comic with the correct word "Killer" (although a number of uncorrected copies remain in circulation).
