CAN YOU SPOT THE DIFFERENCE...? (UPDATED)
Believe it or not, Ripley, there are three main differences (not
including the colouring) between these two versions of the
same page. Can you spot what they are, frantic ones? Go to it!
And here's a side-by-side comparison to help you out a bit.
Update: Okay, you've all had enough time, so here's the
list of differences. The recoloured page was re-created from
the reprint (below) of Thor's origin in #158, as the original proofs
of JOURNEY Into Mystery #83 had been mislaid. As you can
see, the logo protrudes over the border in the original, but not in the
reprint, Thor's dialogue balloon has been relettered or retouched (or
both), and DON BLAKE's cane arm extends further from his body.
Those are the three main differences, but there are others: The story
number at the bottom of the page and the corner page number have
been deleted, and the 'energy' lines around Thor's hammer (under
'and the', and above the first panel) are slightly different. Luckily,
superior proofs of the original tale were rediscovered and
utilsed for most future printings (but not always).
