Issue Notes

The art credits for this issue are in dispute. Some sources list Ken Bald as the cover and interior artist, though Vincent Fago, Timely's interim editor for the drafted Stan Lee, recalled, "I hired a friend from the animation business, Pauline Loth, and she did the art for the first Miss America book." (Al Fago quotation from Les Daniels' Marvel: Five Fabulous Decades of the World's Greatest Comics (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1991), p. 54.) Fago may have been referring to only the interior art credits.
