Indexer Notes

Previous indexer listed "Louis Ferstadt (signed)" for pencils and inks. However, the "signature" is just "copyrighted 1946 by Louis Ferstadt". Ferstadt was probably the packager for this comic. The art strongly resembles Al Zere's work on "The Joy Family," "Dick Transom," "One Round Hogan" for Fox, as well as the "Flossie" strip that appeared in some Quality and Harvey titles.
