Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Al Camy, but this is not him. Compare the gaping square faces in his signed Black Hood story. More probably by King, when looking at all the tilted heads and the slender girl.

Fran and Hal find themself in a harem in Arabia.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Irv Novick, but the movements of the figures are too stiff and clumsy, and none of his faces are found here. This unknown artist with narrow pointed ears and vey long fingers, are found in several other stories, like Zambini and Fran Frazer.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Bernard Klein. None of his angry eyed faces in side view are present. More probably King, with his heads and figures popping up along the panel borders.
