Indexer Notes

Suchorsky is credited to "Alpha the Slave" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and also "The Sea Witch" 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. Oleck is also credited to this feature by Bails.
Suchorsky verified these art credits in Alter Ego #27 (August, 2003) interview with Hames Ware and Jim Vadeboncouer, Jr.
