Indexer Notes

Schroeder is credited to pencils and ink on G.I. Joe in 1955 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and can be spotted by his faces with eyes that don't seem to focus, with very small pupils and often colored blue.

Synopsis
There's usually one bad apple in every barrel.

Indexer Notes

Ashe's work can be recognized by the hands which seem to grow together with some short lines between them. Notice Joe on page 2 panel 1 and compare it with page 3 panel 2 in "Gunman's Gamble", Ziff-Davis' Authentic Police Cases #27. Also some faces in side view here are identical.

Synopsis
A party in a night-club to honor Lieutenant Parker gets out of hand.

Indexer Notes

The artwork here is identical to Kotsky's Flyboy #1 and #2 for Ziff-Davis. The sleek inklines are good indicators of Kotzky. Some angry faces can look like Olesen, but Kotzky has some similar faces in Flyboy.
