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.
