Indexer Notes

Story credited to Robert Kanigher in Action Comics #443. This story could be explained as a nitrogen narcosis-induced dream of Judy's instead of a real adventure, as the male members have no memory of the adventure at the end of the story. No script, pencils and inks credits confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records dated 01/1962, provided by DC Comics
