Indexer Notes

Gattuso's unique and a bit comical style, with gaping faces and running on long legs, is not to be mistaken. He is credited on "Echo" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

The same story was later recounted as 'Murder for Christmas' in Justice (Marvel, 1947 series) #4. Possibly both are adaptations of the same true crime event.
