Indexer Notes

Writer revision from ? to Toni Blum by Craig Delich 2013-12-30. The Who's Who indicates that Toni Blum wrote this feature in 1941-42.

Artist verification for Williams by the Who's Who. The strip was signed B. H. Apiary, which is a by-line on the strip and not a real person.

Indexer Notes

It's a good bet that Blum did the art on this story as the only other artist known to have done it was Lou Fine in 1941 and his style is easily recognizable.

Writer credit added by Craig Delich 2013-10-10 per the Who's Who.

Last Golden Age appearance. Next appearance in All-Star Squadron #32.
