Indexer Notes

Originally credited to George Evans, and that is not surprising when looking at the wide bright eyes both in side and front view. Luis Dominguez is credited on UFO Flying Saucers by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and his special bright eyes can be found in several issues of Warren's horror magazines like Creepy and Eerie in the 60's, also Grimm's Ghost Stories from Gold Key.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Frank Bolle "?", but the art is similar to the other Dominguez stories, with the bright eyes. Also the inking parts made by pen is different from Bolle's brush inked signed story in #10. The notes on the story "Early types of UFOs..." goes here too.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Frank Bolle "?", but the two first panels show very typical Giolitti-faces and wrinkles in clothing. He is credited to UFO Flying Saucers by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and this artwork is identical to his stories in Tonto, Sergeant Preston of the Yukon and Cisco Kid, all from Dell. Bolle have much more even inklines as can be seen in his signed story in #10.
