Indexer Notes

Frank Bolle is credited to "Crime and Punishment" from 1951 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the artwork is identical to his 1948 "Tim Holt". Notice the face of the girl in sideview and hands holding guns.

Indexer Notes

Tuska is credited to "Crime and Punishment" from 1950 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but looking at the movement of man in blue on page two it is exactly identical to his figure on the splash page of Bonnie Parker in "Crime Does Not Pay" #57. Also faces are his. The dates in Who's Who are sometimes stretched.
