Indexer Notes

Giacoia is credited to ink on G.I. Joe for 1952 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the dates can often be approximates, and of all the artists in this series none is more probable than him as to faces and lines.
Art Peddy is credited to pencils on war and romance stories at Ziff-Davis for 1951-52. The artwork is not very far off the uncredited art by Peddy?/Giacoia? on Jerry Bails' Who's Who page on Ziff-Davis. The one probable is as good as the other.
