Indexer Notes

First appearance. However, his origin was not told until Black Cat #6 (June-July, 1947).

It is likely that this story and the story in issue #6 were printed out of order as #6 has the origin and no one even knew of him at that time like they do here in issue #4.

Script credit added by Craig Delich, per The Who's Who, which indicates that Carlin was the only writer for the strip. No extant evidence disputes this.
