Indexer Notes

Art submitted on February 20, 1945. Barks submitted this as an eight-page story; it was reduced to six pages, of ten or eleven panels each, by rearranging and altering the panels so that more could be accommodated on each page. Notes and synopsis by Michael Barrier from "Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book" (M. Lilien, 1982).
