Notes

  • Two of the stories have their original endings altered from Journey into Mystery #8 in this reprint through added text, in the original print, both stories ended with the villain implicitly triumphant this perhaps this was changed due to the Comics Code at the time.
    • In "He Who Hesitates" the ending is changed to alert the reader that after murdering William Baker a birdwatcher informs the authorities which causes Eric Orson to be arrested upon returning to Deversham. In the original story Eric appears to get away with the murder.
    • In "Indoor Sport!" the ending is altered to alert the reader that Mona Rand's latest victim, Tom, is actually himself a murderous ghost as well and that he is out to avenge himself from all women, with a vague implication that the two will destroy each other. In the original story Tom is simply treated as Mona's next victim unaware of what's to come.
