Indexer Notes

Her name started out in #26 as Patricia Lane; later she became Patricia Layne.
First appearance in her own feature. Kriegstein is the only credited artist on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the art is so similar to his signed "Nuggets Nugent" story that it most probably is his work here.
