Indexer Notes

AC Comics editor Bill Black identified the art in in this strip as being by Will Eisner. Larry Antonette drew Yarko in 1941 according to the Who's Who. Writer/art credits revised from Bob Powell to ? by Craig Delich 2010-1-10 since the Who's Who does NOT list Powell with any credits for Yarko and Powell did NOT use the pen name of Anthony Brooks [according to the Who's Who], nor did Eisner use the pen name of Anthony Brooks.
