Indexer Notes

Morisi is credited to "Danger" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork here is exactly similar to his signed story "Deep Death" in #2. Notice the lines in the ears. He is also credited by Jerry Bails to be influenced by George Tuska, and that is very evident by the faces and round eyes in these stories.
