Notes

  • Cover is probably by C.C. Beck, per GCD.
  • As Earth hadn't established interplanetary travel by 1960, the Sivanas and Marvels must have travelled to an alternate Future. As Earth-S is an alternate reality already, this would naturally follow.
  • Billy, Mary, and Freddy each get a new blackjack-inflicted concussion in Chapter 2.

Trivia
