Issue Notes

Indicia title for this issue is "Lassie." Publication date inferred from code number. The code number is Lassie O.S. #282-506, which would indicate that this book was planned to be Four Color #282. There is also an excess of blank space in the indicia between the title "LASSIE" and "Published by Dell Publishing Co." into which the "No. 1" is dropped. That extra space was presumably to accomodate the larger Four Color issue number.

Indexer Notes

Writer credit suggested by Jerry Bails's Who's Who of American Comic Books 1928-1999 (www.bailsprojects.com).
The Who's Who also notes that Mo Gollub was penciler and inker of the Lassie feature in 1950, hence the art ID.

Gaylord Du Bois script credit confirmed as per page 38, Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books, Sorted by Title, compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott. Script identification confirmed by David Porta (September 2013).
