Issue Notes

Vince Fago first takes over (within this title anyway) as interim editor due to Lee's military service.

Full credits page and/or indicia credits:
Martin Goodman: President
Private Stan Lee, U. S. Army: Consulting Editor
Vince Fago: Editorial & Art Director
Mel Barry: Technical Advisor
Rbt. Solomon: Consulting Associate
Gary Keller: Production Assistant
E. Hart & K. Platt: Animation Supervisor
Michael, G. Klein, A. Jafee, Winny: Chiefs of Staff (pencils?)
David Gantz, Jack Grogan: Special Effects (inks?)

Winny = Ed Winiarski
It's not clear who "Michael" is (possibly a transcription error- these credits came from notes made a year ago)
Timely humor comics often had cartoon-ish credits like this on the inside front cover. The titles generally map to typical comic book art and production duties, although the mapping is not always obvious. These credits are inside front cover.

The on-sale date is from the publication date recorded in the Catalog of Copyright Entries, Part 2, Periodicals, 1943, New Series, Vol. 38, No. 1.
