Tommy Paige
Synopsis:
Tommy Paige disguises himself as a Japanese sergeant and gets into their camp.

Indexer Notes

Allison is credited by Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. on this feature in issue #1. The face in close up with long wavy eyebrows, visible pupils, and special ears with a tiny line at the flip, mouth with a marked upper lip, are all signs of Allison and not Nina Albright, whom he can be mixed up with. Compare with his Jesse James story in Cowboy Western #38. He is credited on working for Rural Home publishers by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

Same art as in issue #1, and it looks like Leonard Starr, but uncertain. Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. has Gil Kane and/or Starr as possible artists. Must be Kane when he was Eli Katz.

Red Hawk (ace pilot)

Red Hawk solves the mystery of the disappearing island.

Indexer Notes

Battefield is credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the very simple art match his early Buck Jones stories in Slam Bang Comics. Just a few lines. Inker is not known, but just as simple as the pencils, so maybe all by Battefield?

Mr. Ree (magician detective)

Kiefer is spotted by his tired, skewed faces with eyes not in line and always out of focus. He had many stories for Classics Illustrated.
