Indexer Notes

story continues in next issue
Originally credited to Al Carreno, but it is Ricca. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and can be spotted by his rounded faces with squinting eyes and a small dent under the middle of the chin. He drew Jim Dolan in Slam-Bang Comics.
