Issue Notes

An early graphic novel. Historian Martin O'Hearn calls it the the "First (or Second) Modern Graphic Novel", but it depends on the definitions of "modern" and "graphic novel" one is using. (It is unknown whether this or It Rhymes with Lust (St. John, 1950 Series) was released first)

This book does not have a cover price. Other Gold Medal books from this period generally sold for 25 cents.
