Indexer Notes

conclusion of serial
Originally credited to Bernard Klein, but there are none of his faces with angry eyebrows and squinting eyes, nor the angular jaws. The art must be by Hubbell, and matches very well his signed Kardak story in #15. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and made this and the three next ones.
