Indexer Notes

Altman is credited on Crown Comics by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. The grinning faces are identical to his signed stories in Camera Comics #6 and #8. Also the small sharp, pointed "bracket"-like lines on the upper nose on page 4 and 5, and movement of figures. Also his way of rendering folds in trousers is unique, as is his hatch inking of the black man and skirt of the lady, with hundreds of lines.
