Indexer Notes

title from cover
Same art as in many stories of this feature credited to Crandall. The inking is different from the cover, which is unmistakeable like his later pen inking in the Warren magazines of the 60's. Not the same eyes in the story.

Genre:
adventure
Characters:
Hack O'Hara; V: Hawk (I)
Synopsis:

Indexer Notes

The art is similar to Kirkpatrick's work on several Sally O'Neil in National Comics and Hack O'Hara in Crack Comics. Many faces in sideview popping in from the sides, bony noses in frontview, very wide trouser legs, and also rather still standing figures. Inking uncertain, as she is credited only on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
