Indexer Notes

Across 24 pages, but pages 8, 16, and 24 are 1/2 pages.

Originally Ben Gazzara [Paul Bryan] was listed as Jack Webb [Joe Friday]. Correction made on the DCHistory group at
Yahoo by "Mister Cellophane" and reported the GCD Error list (5 April 2017, from http://errors.comics.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11082) by Rob Allen. Gazzara appeared on the show Run for Your Life where his character, Bryan only has one year to live. Dan Blocker refers to Gazzara's character as having only one year to live, which is a clue to the character's identity.
