Indexer Notes

Dan Spiegle is only credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the inking here is most probably by Ziegler, with much black shadingd and lines as if made with felt tip pens. Especially page 15 has much Ziegler style inking.

Dan Spiegle is only credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and inking is a bit bolder than his signed stories in #18, but could be him.
