Indexer Notes

This was the first story in this title to return to the layout that Archie comics had used in the late '50s and early '60s, with four or five panels on the first page and extra small panels on the subsequent pages. Archie editor Victor Gorelick told the Comics Journal that the larger number of panels was a way of "giving the kids a bit more for their money" after all the Archie titles switched to bi-monthlies.
