NOTE: According to Mark Evanier, this story was "inspired by a cartoonist named Don Sherwood who had hired [people] (separately) to ghost a newspaper strip called DAN FLAGG. At various times, other friends of theirs -- including Angelo Torres, George Evans, George Woodbridge, Al McWilliams and others -- had worked on the strip and it was a recurring joke (almost) for them to discover they were working 'with' each other. [Archie] Goodwin based his script on that situation. Williamson, however, did not draw Sherwood. Al made the lead character of Baldo Smudge (which was the pen name for a few earlier stories where Williamson collaborated with Torres) look like himself. The writer was based on Goodwin. The inker was based on Torres. I'm not sure about the penciller, but I think I heard it was Al McWilliams."
