Indexer Notes

Artist revision from Edd Ashe to Klein per the Who's Who, added by Craig Delich 2013-10-12. According to the Who's Who, Ashe did not draw this feature, and it only lists Klein as the artist for this feature appearing in Lev Gleason's Silver Streak.

The head views of the other characters to left of Saint page are NOT by Klein and artist listing above has a ? to reflect this.

Indexer Notes

Continued from previous issue.

The Fitz by-line puzzles me. The Who's Who states that Fitz was an artist at Lev Gleason in 1941-42 who did various features, but the Who's Who also lists Everett as the sole artist.....and this story is clearly by him. Added by Craig Delich 2013-10-12.

Continued next issue.
