Indexer Notes

Pages consist of 1-3 panels each.

Artist Fred Abranz primarily worked on Warner Bros. characters over his long career with Western Publishing. This is a rare opportunity to see his work with Disney characters.

Goofy is employed by the "Green Arrow Messenger Service". No word on if it was once one of Oliver Queen's vast holdings.
