Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the inking could be Walton, with rather scribbly landscapes and some wild eyes, and many thin inklines in faces. He is credited to ink on G.I. Joe in 1954 by Jerry Bails.

Indexer Notes

Irv Novick is credited to both pencils and ink on G.I. Joe, so this could be him on both, or Bill Walton on ink. Uncertain.

Synopsis:
Pvt. Rogers has nightmares about a dead buddy who wants to shake hands.

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here must be by someone else, as it is not like his credited inking on Johnny Cloud in DC's "All-American Men of War". Those are much more thin penlines than these heavier brushlines.
