Reprints:
  • United States from Weird Terror (Comic Media, 1952 series) #4 (March 1953) [The only differences I noticed for the code change was in colors. The floating bodies were fleshed out in the code version rather than white skeletal. A hit with a poison dart was colored red in the original but not in the code version.]

The rounded faces and eyes far apart are all signs of Morisi and are identical to his other stories in this series.

Indexer Notes

Could be a Duke Douglas spy story, but the main character is never identified.
The illustration is taken from "Trial By Fire" in #10, and is by Bill Discount, who is credited to " Danger" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
