Indexer Notes

The story title on the splash page was typeset rather than hand lettered. It's possible that page one was rewritten, necessitating the lettering on that page to be redone.

When reprinted in Archie Giant Series Magazine (Archie, 1954 series) #499, Frank Doyle is credited as the writer.
