Indexer Notes

Problem: The strip is signed by Paul Quinn (in addition to Everett), who was an artist at Funnies, Inc. circa 1940-41, doing comic book work at Timely and Hillman before leaving comics in 1943 (going with Magellan). The art on this story looks to be totally by Everett, so unsure why Quinn's name is on this strip. The Who's Who doesn't indicate that Quinn worked at Novelty Press. Added by Craig Delich 2013-10-11.

Art also signed "Everett" in the last panel.

Writer credit verified by the Who's Who.

The Who's Who lists Fitz (who is on the by-line) as an artist who worked at Lev Gleason on various features in 1941-42, but not specifically on Red Reed. This story is illustrated by Everett......verified by Blake Bell in The Bill Everett Archives #2.

The last panel, a blurb for the next issue's story, is signed "W.B.E." (which stands for William Blake Everett).

The Fitz by-line puzzles me. The Who's Who states that Fitz was an artist at Lev Gleason in 1941-42 who did various features, but the Who's Who also lists Everett as the sole artist.....and this story is clearly by him. Added by Craig Delich 2013-10-12.
