Indexer Notes

Except for the masthead, Captain Marvel wears no cape in the story.

The last panel of the story states that Whiz Comics #12 would be on sale November 22nd.

Inker revision from Beck to Costanza by Craig Delich (see note below).

Beck sometimes drew Pete Costanza into some of the Captain Marvel stories, such as this one, which Costanza then inked. Information verified by P. C. Hamerlinck in Alter Ego #126 (July 2014) and added by Craig Delich.
