Indexer Notes

Ad between pages 4 and 5.

The splash page is signed 'Nina Tallarico', but the art style looks very much like the style normally credited to Tony Tallarico, her father. It is not clear what involvement Nina Tallarico had in this story - perhaps she wrote parts or all of the story instead of contributing to the art. Her only other credit at Charlton is a writing credit.
