Indexer Notes

Jim Vadebonceour Jr notes: Similar inks to cover & first story, so it's possible that Hartley is present, but Paul Reinman is the predominant style in all three of these entries. Just compare eyes and noses on Hartley solo story, The Wedding Day, in this issue to contrast the styles.

Nick Caputo disagrees with Jim, seeing similarities in style to Reinman but believes inking is all Hartley.
