Synopsis:
When the dim-witted Docker was beaten by his boss with a blow by a gun to his face, he finds it has paralyzed a facial nerve and frozen his grinning face similar to that of a hyena. He first kills his tormentors, then attempts to seek help from a doctor. But Doll Man intervenes and the villain falls upon a scalpel and dies.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Al Bryant, but tilting figures with long upper body and awkward way of standing and walking, as on rubber legs, 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 varies, so most probably not by him.

Indexer Notes

So similar art to the previous in this feature that it could be Quackenbush. He is credited on pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Uncertain inking when compared with his signed stories.
