Indexer Notes

McCann is easy to recognise by his long noses, heavy shading and much black inking, like a long gloomy funeral. He was a painter, and that may account for the complete lack of action. He also drew "The Conspiracy of Pontiac" and "Off on a Comet" in Classics Illustrated. Art ID by Steinar Ådland, March 2011.
