Indexer Notes

This was the last new Harry Lucey story to appear in "Archie." Lucey, who had been drawing for MLJ/Archie since the '40s and drew most issues of the Archie flagship title from the late '50s on, retired suddenly due to being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. His first replacement on the title was his inker, Chic Stone.
