Indexer Notes

At one point the narrator gets mixed up and says "She'll nurse him, rehearse him, and give out the news that the Southland gave birth to the blues!" This ("sorry, wrong song") is a quote from the song "Birth of the Blues."

Inker credit changed to match the credits listed in Archie & Friends Double Digest Magazine (Archie, 2011 series) #8.
