Indexer Notes

The bargain Betty finds in the remaindered book section of a store is a novel called "Sole Mates: Fish In Love" by Mike Pellowski, the story's author. It's unknown whether the in-joke was inserted by Pellowski or artist Dan DeCarlo.

When reprinted in Archie's Funhouse Double Digest (Archie, 2014 series) #17, writing is credited to George Gladir and inks are credited to Jimmy DeCarlo.
