Indexer Notes

Rosenberger is credited on pencils and ink for Orbit Publications by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He can be recognised by his distinct faces with rather small features, and "soft" movement with actors wondering what is going on. He is best known for his many stories in "Adventures of the Fly" and "Adventures of the Jaguar" for Archie.
