Issue Notes

All information for this issue provided by Ger Apeldoorn (March 2011), unless otherwise indicated.

The print at the top of the pages inside this comic alternates between "High School Confidential" and "Charlton Comics Give You More!" It is possible this comic was originally going to be called just "High School Confidential" but was changed at the last minute, perhaps due to legal issues with the 1958 movie titled "High School Confidential."
