Indexer Notes

Writer credit from The Secret History of Wonder Woman (Jill Lapore, 2014), also confirmed to Jerry Bails.

Joye Hummel is the maiden name for the scripter (before 1947), then she married David Murchison. When he passed away, Joye married Jack Kelly. So her name, all combined, reads Joye Hummel Murchison Kelly, the way Jill Lapore refers to her in her book above.

The Leprechauns seem fascinated by Wonder Woman's compelling lasso, even though we learn in Chapter 3 they possess darts with the same power.
