Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Paul Reinman, but none of his very special wedge shaped heads with eyes far apart and out of line are present. Compare with his signed story in #19. The faces here, with prominent cheekbones point to Lucey. Art looks like his credited story Madam Satan in #16, and signed story in Crime Does Not Pay #22.
He is credited to this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Mort Meskin, but there are none of his long chinned faces with squinting eyes, or very long legged figures with small heads.

Indexer Notes

The faces here, with prominent cheekbones could be Lucey. Looks like his credited story Madam Satan in #16, and signed story in Crime Does Not Pay #22.
