Indexer Notes

Based on a true story
Suchorsky is credited to "The Sea Witch" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and also "Alpha the Slave" and "Frogman" for Hillman, and comparing the art in these stories, this is his work. His fine drawings can be recognized by the faces with many lines, rounded lower lips and ears.
