Indexer Notes

Last appearance in Weird Comics #6.

The Who's Who reports that Dan Gormley drew this feature in 1940.

The Men of Mystery reprint lists Ramona Patenaude as the artist, but the Who's Who does not confirm the fact that Patenaude ever drew this feature for Fox Publications and no other extant evidence verifies this either.
