Notes

The original cover has been redrawn to remove the second head on the aliens and reposition the background, as well as some other minor elements. The changes are probably the result of censorship, although the interior story retains the two-headed aliens as a central plot element. The colouring closely follows the original colouring by Stan Goldberg.
