Indexer Notes

Previously unpublished Flash story circa 1948, professionally published here for the first time in black and white. The story was originally planned to be appear in an issue of Flash Comics, but the series was cancelled before the story was published. Later, Robert Kanigher apparently gave photocopies of the 12-page story to a young correspondent, Robin Snyder, who published it in his black and white fanzine "The Comics!" It is from that fanzine that the story was taken and published in this collection.
