Indexer Notes

22 consecutive and untitled one-page installments of the Eisner/Iger Shop strip. "We believe the work printed here represents [Fine's] entire run on the strip" -- Greg Theakston. Sequentially numbered from page 1-22, I'm guessing that was done after first publication, where these likely appeared one page at a time.
