Indexer Notes

We originally credited this story to Sprang alone.

Craig Delich changed those credits to Sprang (layouts), Bob Kane (pencils), and Burnley (inks), saying "There are a few indications that display partial art by Sprang, especially panels 3 and 4 on page 12 (that is Sprang's bat on Batman's chest, not Kane's), and throughout the story, there is no cape knot at Batman's throat (such as seen in the previous two stories by Kane and Burnley). The Robin figures on the splash and first two pages appear to be Sprang's work (as is the cover), and maybe a few other random Robins." In addition, Kane told Joe Desris that these stories were his pencils with Burnley inking him.

However, Martin O'Hearn has identified the penciler as Cooper, not Bob Kane.
