Indexer Notes

When reprinted in Jughead Double Digest (Archie, 1989 series) #196, writer is credited as Gladir and art is credited to Samm Schwartz.

When this story was reprinted in The Best of Archie Comics (Archie, 2011 series) the pencils are credited to Harry Lucey.

Pencils look to be Harry Lucey and not Samm Schwartz.
