Indexer Notes

Schroeder is credited to pencils and ink on G.I. Joe in 1956 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He drew "Airboy" and "Heap", and some stories in Hillman's "Tales of Horror". His art can be spotted by faces with eyes often out of focus.

Indexer Notes

Alex Kotzky is credited to pencils and ink on G.I. Joe in 1952, but this is from 1956. The artwork is much identical to his Flyboy #1 and #2 for Ziff-Davis. The sleek inklines is best to pin on Kotzky, and also the faces. Some angry faces can look like Olesen, but Kotzky has some similar in Flyboy. He also had one story in G.I. Joe #39. Beautiful work. His name is spelled with "z" not "s" like in some credits.
