Indexer Notes

Bill Woggon recycles the aerial view of Riverdale High School from his Betty and Veronica story in Archie Comics (Archie, 1942 series) #26 as K.O. Kelly's college. Shorten and Fagaly are mentioned as football players, references to editor Harry Shorten and artist Al Fagaly. Vigoda is mentioned as a football player who paints a tackling dummy as a pin-up girl, a dual reference of name and trade for artist Bill Vigoda.
