Interesting title blurb and illustration on the cover, but they have no relationship to any interior feature.

Indexer Notes

Partially obliterated signature in panel four reads "Levander," as confirmed by James Van Nuys, the artist's grandson, who is in possession of 4 pages of the story in black & white, pre-production form.

The Who's Who credits Levander on both pencils and inks on another Fiction House series, and there seems no reason to doubt that she is also the penciller here.

Lee Elias previous suggested as penciller on this reprint, but not on the original in issue 40.
