Indexer Notes

Henry Sharp is credited to G.I. Joe by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork is identical to credited stories in "Amazing Adventures" #4 and "Nightmare" #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement, especially when running with knees lifted high.

Indexer Notes

Since Giacoia has signed it in ink, it must be he who has inked it too, even if he is credited only to pencils in Jerry Bails' Who's Who...

Indexer Notes

Dan DeCarlo is credited to both pencils and ink on "The Yardbirds" in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but Rudy Lapick is also credited as his personal inker, and the inking is not to be distinguished from other signed DeCarlo/Lapick stories in G.I. Joe.

Indexer Notes

Henry Sharp is credited to G.I. Joe by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork is identical to credited stories in "Amazing Adventures" #4 and "Nightmare" #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement, especially when running with knees lifted high. Notice the big ear of the Lieutenant in sideview in panel 4. Only Sharp makes them like that.
