Indexer Notes

Morisi is credited to "Danger" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork here is exactely similar to his signed story "Deep Death" in #2. He is also credited by Jerry Bails to be influenced by George Tuska, and that is very evident by the round-jawed faces in these stories. The 3 last stories in this issue are by Morisi.
