Indexer Notes

This story would appear to not be original Charlton material, unlike the stories in this issue by Joe Gill and Ray Dirgo, but one originally prepared for the foreign market. Dialogue is plain and straight-forward, presumably for ease of translation into other languages. Layout follows that of Hanna-Barbera comic stories created by Western Publishing – four-tiers per page.
