Indexer Notes

Many of the cameos appear on page 9 when Archie stumbles into the hidden base of P.O.P. On that page is a obscured picture of a male with an eye patch over his left eye, tenatively identified as Nick Fury. Page 12 shows a store named "Norman's Taxidermy", a reference to Alfred Hitchcock's movie "Psycho". Mad Doctor Doom and Chester first appeared in Adventures of Little Archie (Archie, 1957 series) #24.
