Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Warren King?" and also Harry Sahle, but this is identical artwork to Cooper's signed story in Top-Notch Laugh #31, with some scary close up faces with untidy eyebrows, as the one on the last page, which is exactely like one in #31. Cooper is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
