For a brief period of time between 1947 and 1951, the folks at Atlas Comics found themselves sitting on top of the teen humor genre (in no small way because of their success with Patsy Walker). Characters like Georgie, Mitzi, Margie, Wendy, etc. were rushed to print as soon as the ink was dry on the original drawings. A lot of freelance artists would come and go due to the supply and demand, and paperwork wasn't as formally kept as it is now.
Which is how we end up with stories like this.
Excellent layouts on all eight pages combined with experienced writing gives us a great story, but it's an absolute mystery as to who actually deserves credit for it. A shame.
