Indexer Notes

Al Carreno is credited on Golden Arrow in this period by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and compared with signed work in Kid Cowboy #9, this story is most probably by him.

Indexer Notes

paper-drive feature
Pete Riss is credited on Spy Smasher by Jerry Bails' Who's Who for 1942-43, and this story from 1944 could possibly be his too, as it compares well with Kid Eternity #56.
