Indexer Notes

Raab is credited to Hillman crime stories 1948-49 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and this artwork is identical to his signed work in Western Fighters #v1-12 "The Man With the Whip". Just look at the peculiar fish eyes and bulging foreheads. The inking can remind a little of Frank Robbins.

Indexer Notes

Zolnerowich is credited to Hillman crime stories in 1948-53 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the inking and smiling faces here are identical to his signed covers. Other clues are the long downward wrinkle lines on the upper arm of suits, and much black inside the ears and at the corner of the mouth when smiling.
