Indexer Notes

Artist suggested by Gary Watson, June 2008.
Chu Hing is the creator of this feature and the only one credited by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Also Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. has him as artist in issue #1, and the art is similar. Compare the special eyebrows, bushy at the outer top.

Indexer Notes

Allison is credited by Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. in issue #1 on this feature, and the art is similar. He has a funny way of drawing running people, with legs really stepping out and which is found in some of his credited Chameleon stories in Target Comics too.

Indexer Notes

Art ID suggested by Gary Watson, June 2008.
The artwork is similar to the previous issues, in which Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. has a wild guess at Gil Kane an/or Leonard Starr. That is Kane when he was Eli Katz.
Writer and art credits verified by Leonard Starr in Alter Ego #110 (June 2012). Formerly Dick Briefer ?

Image from this story used as cover to #6.
