Indexer Notes

According to the Who's Who, Paddock probably illustrated this story, not L. Bing, so art credits revised to reflect this. Walter Frehm is a pen name (and by-line) for several artists, including Frehm himself (who drew the Green Mask in 1939), Paddock (who drew the feature in 1940), and Louis Cazeneuve (who drew the feature in 1941).
