Indexer Notes

This material was also reprinted in Smilin' Jack (Dell, 1948 series) #1 (January-March 1948), with different coloring and some of the strips modified (ie. enlarged or shrunk) so the story would fit in 8 pages instead of 7.
The daily comic strips of 20 and 21 June 1941 appear on pages 2 and 3. The Sunday page of 22 June 1941 appears on pages 3 and 4.
