Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Sam Cooper, but the art is identical to Streeter's signed covers on #20 and #21, with very clean, even inklines and shadings.

The pencils must be King, with all the bent figures and heads popping up along the panel borders, and the slim figure of the girl.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Sam Cooper?", but not him. It is the same unknown artist who drew Loop Logan in #20, and some Fran Frazer and Zambini stories. Peculiar ears and long crab leg fingers.
