    • Tyrone Carron was murdered two days earlier, on the 19th of April, according to Muscles Mully's written confession.
    • This issue's episode of The Clock Strikes! re-uses exactly the same plot as the "Clock" story in Detective Picture Stories #5, April 1937, right down to the detail of the villain using copies of The Clock's own calling cards to frame him.
