Indexer Notes

Even though the Who's Who doesn't list Gustavson as a writer of the strip, Mike Kooiman and Jim Amash state in the Quality Companion that he created the strip and wrote it, so the script credit has been added by Craig Delich 2013-1-18. Also verified by Gustavson's son, Terry Gustafson.
