Indexer Notes

There is nothing to suggest that anyone other than Mac Raboy did the inks.

Oddity: on page 2, panel 6, and page 7, panel 4, Freddy Freeman mentions his alter ego's name, but doesn't change into Captain Marvel Jr.

The last panel on page 14 gives the title to the next story: "The Army of Doom!".
