Comment: Very good artwork and colors are mostly okay (last frame of story is B&W), story, by his own, is a little bit better than usually (specially humorous points) but nothing brilliant. Title of The Odd Comic World version is black on red background (“Daemond” outline), but in Complete Works version all letters are red on black background. Red “The End” (in last frame of the story) of Complete Works they replace with B&W typed letters. Sharp eyed can point out male genitales from first frame of the story…
Special: Actually the dialogue on this one was rewritten by Herb Arnold although it was nowhere mentioned. [Read more, Infinity #5 (1973), an interview by Jan Strnad]
