Indexer Notes

Art credits from Jim Walls via the GCD Error List (27 January 2007); the original indexer wrongly credited E.R. Kinstler.
Regarding the reprint, Space Detective #4 is dated July 1952; Robotmen of the Lost Planet is dated only 1952; so it's hard to say which was really published first.
