Indexer Notes

Henry Sharp is credited to G.I. Joe by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork is identical to credited stories in "Amazing Adventures" #4 and "Nightmare" #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement, especially when running with knees lifted high.
