Indexer Notes

A previous indexer identified the character of Skyrocket Steele Dodge as featured on the cover, but this is just not so. The image is one of generic fantasy, beautifully rendered in partial wash tones by Everett.

While 6-page Dan Hastings text stories were common, the only recorded 6-page comic story of this feature was in Star Comics #8. However, no scans are available to confirm the match, and scans of issue #9 are incomplete and do not seem to have a Dan Hastings story.
