The statement of ownership from the following issue lists Dana E. Dutch, rather than Chesler himself, as editor.
Ric is credited as pen name for Gus Ricca by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
Note the names on the tombstone are comic book artists: G[eorge] Tuska, Gus Ricca, O[tto] Eppers, and Fran Smith (?).
Both Otto Eppers and Joe Beck are credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and art similar to Beck's story "Prehistoric Pete", which only he is credited on. Only available Eppers art samples are some QSL radio cards.
info from Craig Delich 9/05
Plastino is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the art matches his Superman story in Action Comics #214, like faces, hats, siuts and movement.
