Notes

Pages five and six of this story have been expanded from a single page of the original, increasing the page count of this story by one page. As the story printed in Wonder Comic Monthly 48 also has seven pages, it is clearly drawn from this printing.


Notes

Strip advertising at the bottom of various pages in this issue promotes Humpty Dumpty; Hopalong Cassidy; Binky; and Mutt and Jeff. Each advertisement is repeated twice throughout the issue. Three features in this issue were reprinted in Murray comics in April 1969.
