Indexer Notes

Henry Sharp is credited to G.I. Joe by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the artwork is identical to credited stories in "Amazing Adventures" #4 and "Nightmare" #10. Very large mouth when shouting, scribbly inking, broad grinning faces with big ears, and much funny cartoon style movement.
Artwork credit confirmed by Shaun Clancy in a conversation with Herb Rogoff, an editor of many G.I. Joe stories via the Comics History Exchange page on Facebook (17 May 2014).

Genre:
war
Characters:
Private Joe Burch; Sergeant Mulvaney; Korean Mata Hari

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Inking could be him, but it looks more like Sachs, who is not credited as inking G.I. Joe by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but he did work for Ziff-Davis, and this inking reminds me of his DC work on Mystery in Space. The faces in close up looking behind them, are Novick.
