Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Paul Gustavson, but this is Leav. He has large hands and many lively faces, some panels without backgrounds, and a special way of running with high lifted legs. Compare with his signed story in Wanted Comics #52. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who on both pencils and ink.
