Indexer Notes

Frank Frazetta's first published work according to Overstreet, 30th Ed. and Greg Theakston.

Previously indexed as Giunta pencils and Frazetta inks, but this is not the story as generally acknowledged (see, for example, Comic Book Marketplace #108 (December 2003), page 46). Giunta apparently recognized talent in the fifteen year-old Frazetta and allowed him to contribute some figure work and some pencils. The bulk of the inking, if not all of it, is recognizably in Giunta's usual style, although if Frazetta was allowed to ink at all (and I have serious doubts) then panel four on page two is probably the strongest candidate.
