Indexer Notes

Dian, from the Sandman strip, made an appearance in this tale.

Comic historians should read page 9 of Alter Ego #125 re The Tarantula. Lee Harris illustrated a splash page (containing several more panels) for The Tarantula around the same time this story appeared in SS #1, and is reproduced. In the bottom margin, the art is dated April 24, 1941, and a 1941 copyright notice for Leland Harris (Lee's legal name at the time) is penciled in. This artwork was handed down to Harris' son, Jonathan.
