Indexer Notes

Originally cerdited "Al Bryant?", but tilting figures with long upper body and awkward way of standing and walking, some wild eyes, and also broad shoulders and narrow head on stretched neck are all pointing to Zolnerowich. He is credited on both pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but inking may vary.

Indexer Notes

Some pointed faces with eyes far apart, and grinning faces in sideview similar to Peter Riss' many Manhunter stories in Police Comics. He is credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. The inker is the same as in eleven Manhunter and several Jester stories, but not known.
