Extra: The Vampire Archieve version was restored by José Villarrubia.
Humour: On Vampire Archieve (on fifth page of the story, i.e. pg 93 of the book) the first word ballon had forgotten to reletter (there is a Spanish text instead). It means that José Villarrubia used a Spanish version of the story for the basics for his restoring work for that page of that story.
