Indexer Notes

Frank Kramer is credited to Ziff-Davis' "Wild Boy" for 1951-53 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and he is the only artist not found sample art of, so it has to be his work here. He is found in several "Wild Boy" stories. The other artists seem to be counted for.

Indexer Notes

Irv Novick and Bernard Sachs are both credited to "Joe Barton" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the faces in close up looking backwards, and with lightning eyebrows are like Novick's work. The inking may be by Sachs as he is the only inker credited to Joe Burton by Jerry Bails, but his bright eyes are missing and the inking a bit heavy...
