Indexer Notes

Originally credited "John Rosenberger ?"
The art is similar to Kirkpatrick's work on several Sally O'Neil in National Comics and Hack O'Hara in Crack Comics. Many faces in sideview popping in from the sides, bony noses in frontview, very wide trouser legs, and also rather still standing figures. Inking uncertain, as she had much pencil work for Quality Comics.
