Indexer Notes

The GCD index of the original printing of this story gave Roussos as the inker, the indexer of this printing thought it was Meskin inking himself. It is unknown at this time which is correct. House of Mystery: The Bronze Age Omnibus Vol. 1 credits the inks to Meskin.
Both Meskin and Roussos have quite distinctive inking styles during this period. Faces in close up generally reveal the inker's identity. This most definitely looks like Meskin.
