Indexer Notes

This story uses an older, heavier version of Little Archie's mom, closer to her appearance in the regular Archie comics. In subsequent Little Archie stories, she reverted to her usual svelte bombshell look.

In his article on Bolling in Comic Book Artist (March 2004) Gary Brown picked this as Bolling's best post-1960s Little Archie story.
