Indexer Notes

When reprinted in World of Archie Double Digest (Archie, 2010 series) #36, story is credited to Mike Pellowski, pencils are credited to Tim Kennedy and inks to Henry Scarpelli. The credits in the digest are probably incorrect, as this would be eight years earlier than the earliest known Tim Kennedy artwork, both in the GCD and from the Who's Who, and does not look like Tim Kennedy's pencils in other stories from that digest that are confirmed to be by Tim Kennedy.
