Indexer Notes

Writer credit revised from Paul Gustavson to ? by Craig Delich 2013-4-5. Jim Amash, in the Quality Companion, verifies that Gustavson wrote this feature through Police #22, then picked up again with #37. The intervening writer is unknown for this story.

Paul's son, Terry, said that he never saw any of his Dad's work leave his Dad's studio that he had not penciled, inked and lettered. Letterer credit added by Craig Delich.
