Indexer Notes

The artwork with many googly-eyed faces, straight upturned noses, and some protruding lower lips, matches Asch's stories in Lawbreakers Suspen Stories, one signed. Also The Voice stories in Feature Comics have some of these googly eyes. Most probably his work, but as he is not confirmed, a question mark.

This Yankee Girl is unrelated to Kitty Kelly, who sometimes used the name in earlier Chesler / Superior comics. Full scan of story available at http://www.fortunecity.com/victorian/hartford/103/32three1.html

The faces with a broad chin and a little dent in the middle are probably signs of Ricca, based on the sample on Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
