Indexer Notes

George Gladir is credited with Script and Bill Golliher with Pencils in the original printing of this story.

Names of the real-world characters are changed in this reprint.

Charles Clayton is Chuck's ancestor who was a cartoonist during the American Revolution.

There are many in-joke references to parts of comic fandom. For instance, the Wendell Comics characters of Wendell, Brenda and Cobina, which are spoofs of Archie, Betty and Veronica. Archie is continually being mistaken as Wendell by comic fans, and Betty and Veronica enter the three of them in the costume contest at San Diego as the Wendell Comics characters.
