Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Paul Reinman?", but his faces with eyes far apart and out of line are not to be found here. This is most probably Lucey, when comparing with his signed stories in #25 and #29. Notice long rounded chin and very high S-lined eyebrows. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

last appearance
Originally credited to Harry Lucey, but this is the same unknown artist who made several Fran Frazer and Zambini stories, and some other features. Noticeable are the peculiar narrow and pointed ears, and very long hands with creepy fingers.

[The Comeback Trail] (Table of Contents: 7)
