Indexer Notes

Henry Kiefer is credited as penciller in this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He is best known for his many Classics Illustrated stories. His ugly faces with eyes that are always out of focus is very easy to spot, and everyone look exactly the same. The unknown inker has made the Kiefer-faces a bit more attractive here.
