Indexer Notes

Pencils are credited to Mike Pellowski and Stan Goldberg. It is unusual to see that combination. Inks are credited to Henry Scarpelli and letters are credited to Bill Yoshida.

The pencils appear to be Al Hartley, not those who are credited. See Betty's hairstyle and Jughead's hat, which is small for his head.

Lettering also appears to be Al Hartley, which would be normal for a story he drew.

Henry Scarpelli would be an unusual choice to ink Al Hartley, and with the other credits being listed incorrectly, the inker credit is suspect.
