Indexer Notes

Pete Motisi is credited to Two-Gun Lil 1952 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork match other of his stories. He has some faces that look like Tuska, which can also be found in his signed work in Crime and Punishment.
Error report 6417 by Ger Apeldoorn, has this info: "Looks like Pete Morisi inked in the Quality house style, with some parts looking like either Morisi inked them after all, or his pencils must have been very precise, also has a couple of Tuska faces."
