Issue Notes

Pencils and inks for cover and throughout issue originally credited to Matt Baker. Credits removed due to Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr's information on the goldenagecomics.co.uk forum (http://goldenagecomics.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,855.0.html) that "by 1949, Matt Baker had left the Iger Shop and was diligently creating scads of romance and westerns for St. John Publishing Co." and that he doesn't believe these are Baker by comparing quality either.
