Indexer Notes

Artist has been attributed to both Bill Vigoda and Harry Lucey. The story appears to be in Lucey's style, but the pencils and look of the characters are not similar to anything Lucey had drawn either before or after this story; in fact, they greatly resemble Vigoda's pencils. If Lucey did indeed draw this story, it would be his first Archie story.
