According to Grand Comics Database, this story is made up of tracings, copied and collaged from previous "Hawks of the Seas" strips.) This issue also features four one page fillers, "Bobby," signed by Iger; "Jumbo Laffs," signed as I.M. Leffin; "Uncle Otto" (signed as Heck, according to GCD, this is by Eisner); "Pee Wee" (signed by Iger); and a two page text story, "Strange Glory." Cover price $0.10.
