Notes

Story begins with a reprint of the original cover (Art: Jim Aparo), followed by two incorrect pages as pages 2 and 3. The original pages 1 and 2 from this story (including the title page) are consequently not reprinted. These incorrect pages appear to be from "The Barren Earth", which ran in Warlord from issue 63.
