Indexer Notes

Eisner signed later installments of this (and did the art, or at least someone from the Eisern/Iger shop did), but has no signature here. Also, Jerry Bails' Who's Who credits Eisner as wr/pen/ink starting in 1937, so this writing credit seems suspicious in the absence of corroborating evidence.
