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 below is a side-by-side comparison to help you out a bit. (Click to enlarge - we don't want you suffering from eyestrain.)
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).
