Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Emil Gershwin. Alex Blum is credited on penciling this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and his skewed faces with gloomy eyes and eyebrows are found here. He had many stories for Classics Illustrated. The inking is uncertain, as Gershwin is not credited on Ibis, and the ears are not inked like samples of his work.
