Indexer Notes

The artwork is identical to stories credited by the GCD to Sharp in Amazing Adventures (Ziff-Davis, 1950 series) #4 and a story suggested as Sharp in Nightmare (St. John, 1953 series) #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement.

Indexer Notes

Mike Sekowsky is credited to pencils on G.I. Joe 1950-51 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and he can be spotted by the rather short legged figures and their way of walking seen in front view.
