Indexer Notes

The artwork is identical to stories credited by the GCD to Sharp in Amazing Adventures (Ziff-Davis, 1950 series) #4 and a story suggested as Sharp in Nightmare (St. John, 1953 series) #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement.

The artwork is identical to stories credited by the GCD to Sharp in Amazing Adventures (Ziff-Davis, 1950 series) #4 and a story suggested as Sharp in Nightmare (St. John, 1953 series) #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement.. Notice the big ear of the Lieutenant in sideview in panel 4. Only Sharp makes them like that.
