This story was written and drawn as a ten-page story with three-tier pages, but
published as a seven-pager. It was cut up, panels were trimmed or expanded and
the panels were pasted up in eight- or ten-panel (four-tier) pages instead of
the original six-panel (three-tier) pages. In some panels, drawings not by Barks
were added to fill in the empty space caused by the alterations in his panels.
Apparently, no panels were omitted.
The story was a victim of
shrinking comic-book size, which was
caused by paper restrictions during World War II.
As a result, there were too many pages of material to fit in the number of
printed pages available. This made the publisher decide to trim the story in
the least painful manner, rather than to omit artwork which he already paid for.
