Indexer Notes

On page 2, Satan chooses a soul by throwing a dart at a map. The map implies that Herbie lives in the midwest USA, in Nebraska or Kansas. On page 10, Herbie's stare melts Frankenstein and Dracula, during which the two plead for help; their words are too small for the balloons and in a different lettering style, suggesting that different words were changed at the last minute.
Miss Baylor is based on Elizabeth Taylor.
