Editor’s Notes:

1. It isn’t mentioned in the podcast but the Captain America story was also included in the Captain America Epic Collection: Dawn’s Early Light.

2. The Captain America story was 36 years old at the time this podcast was recorded. It is incorrectly referred to as being 16 or 17 years old in the podcast.

3. Jack of Hearts first appeared in Deadly Hands of King-Fu 22 (Mar 1976). His earliest appearances, in Deadly Hands of Kung Fu (22-24, 26, 29-32), were reprinted in 2017 in the Deadly Hands of Kung Fu Omnibus Vol. 2.

4. There is one page in Mantlo: A Life in Comics dedicated to the Jack of Hearts. It didn’t really shed any new light on the history of the Jack of Hearts. He is compared to Rocket Raccoon who at the time the article was written (2007) had mostly been forgotten compared to the Jack of Hearts who went on to become a member of the Avengers (2000-2004). Rocket Raccoon made a comeback in late 2007 along with the new version of the Guardians of the Galaxy and has appeared regularly ever since in Marvel Comics.
