Indexer Notes

Story based on Stephen Vincent Benet's "The Devil and Daniel Webster".
His name is Hebberd, not Hebboa, as previously stated.. He is credited only on ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who for 1942-43, and unconfirmed pencils/ink for 44-45. One of his trademarks are googly eyes and high arched eyebrows.
