Indexer Notes

Per Blake Bell, "Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko" (Fantagraphics Books, 2008, ISBN-13: 9781560979310), page 20, Steve Ditko's first published work (his second sale, appearing before his first sale) is penciling and inking the story "Paper Romance" in Gillmor Magazines' DARING LOVE #1 (September-October 1953). According to Blake, "So buried was this title [DARING LOVE] in the dustbin of history that Ditko's contributions went undiscovered until the late 1980s."
