Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Dan Zolnerowich ?", but the close up heads in 3/4 backview are exactely identical to Winter's signed Kangaroo Man story in Choice Comics #3, and especially the credited story in Planet Comics #60. Also some figures standing with legs far apart. The inking is unlike his signed stories. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
