Indexer Notes

Ernest Schroeder is the main artist on G.I. Joe in '55 and '56, and he is credited for these years to pencils and ink by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He drew "Airboy" and "Heap", and some stories in Hillman's "Tales of Horror". He can best be spotted by his faces that have eyes out of focus in close up, often colored light blue and with very small pupils.
