Story title taken from the contents page.

Letterer credit by Craig Delich 2013-1-27.

The Masterworks edition states that Blythe is a pen-name, but the Who's Who disagrees. The Who's Who states that there was an artist named Fred M. who drew several strips for Marvel (Norman the Doorman and Pedro the Peril), who obviously used the Blythe by-line as a pen-name on these two features only.

The Masterworks edition lists writer as unknown, pencil by unknown & Don Rico, and inks by unknown & George Klein. The last panel states that The Secret Stamp will also be appearing in a new magazine called Kid Komics, which would go on sale September 20, 1942.

Writer credit, Stan Lee, verified by the Who's Who........Lee was the only writer of this strip in 1941. Thus ? removed by Craig Delich 2013-2-11.

In addition, Don Rico only drew the Secret Stamp in 1942 according to the Who's Who, while Bob Oksner did draw the strip in 1941, thus credits revised from Rico to Oksner.

Indexer Notes

Writer credit verified accorded to the Who's Who and the following notes added by Craig Delich 2013-2-10. According to the Who's Who, the only writer of the Secret Stamp in 1942 was Stan Lee, so question mark removed.

The Masterworks edition lists the writer as Stan Lee ?, penciler as Bob Oksner & unknown, and inker as unknown.

Don Rico did illustrate the Secret Stamp in 1942 (pencil and ink), but this story was done in 1941 to appear in the January, 1942 issue of Captain America (#22). I agree that Oksner did this story, but inks as well as pencils. Vince Alascia did not work on this strip according to the Who's Who. Credits changed accordingly from Rico pencils and Alascia ? inks to Oksner.
