Indexer Notes

Dan DeCarlo is credited to both pencils and ink on Wendy the WAF in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but Rudy Lapick is also credited as his personal inker, and the inking is not to be distinguished from other signed DeCarlo/Lapick stories in G.I. Joe.

Indexer Notes

Only Irv Novick, Mort Drucker and Bill Walton is credited to G.I. Joe in 1954 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and this must be Novick, but inker is uncertain.

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.
