This comic is an adaptation of: Tales to Astonish (vol. 1) #44 (June 1963): "The Creature from Kosmos!".

This story is primarily a re-presentation of the classic story "The Creature from Kosmos," originally published in Tales to Astonish #44 (June 1963). That story introduced Janet Van Dyne (the Wasp) and the Kosmosians. There is some new material as well, however. The previously published material comprises pages 3 through 19 of this 20-page story. The original 1963 story was written by Stan Lee and/or Ernie Hart with art by Jack Kirby and/or Don Heck.
