Indexer Notes

Leaning 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 may vary, and is uncertain.

Indexer Notes

So similar art to the previous in this feature that it most probably be Quackenbush. He is credited on pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the inking too looks like his signed stories for Quality Comics.
