There was a prior inking credit to George Klein, but while Michael J. Vassallo notes that the Gabriele credit is "not set in stone", he and the other spotters for the Masterworks identified Klein in enough other places that it seems unlikely that they would have missed him here.
Found on the inside front cover.
The feature last appeared in Comedy Comics (Marvel, 1942 series) #10, although the characters did not wear costumes.
Next appearance of the Victory Boys in All-Winners Squad: Band of Heroes (Marvel, 2011 series) #1.
previous appearance in Mystic Comics (Marvel, 1940 series) #7.
next appearance in All Select Comics (Marvel, 1943 series) #1.
Caniff-esque adventure. There is a teaser at the end for another of Jonah's adventures to be published in the next issue but it never appeared.
Doc Vassallo characterizes this as "primarily by Don Rico" but with "signs of others including Al Plastino".
At the end, there is a teaser for more adventures of "Butch Brogan, the Happy Hobo" in the next issue, but they never appeared.
Vassallo notes that Klein may be a "background inker" on the story. The Masterworks edition lists Kildale & unknown on the pencils, George Klein & unknown on the inks, while Who's Who lists Fred Kida as pencils and inks.
Likely a reworked version of the Fourth Musketeer from Comedy Comics (Marvel, 1942 series) #10. The different artist could explain the costume changes. As no background for the character is given at all in this story, it fits well enough (even though the Fourth Musketeer was specifically the spirit of a dead Musketeer risen to fight the Axis).
There is evidence of last-minute re-lettering of the "Blue Blade" name, and the character is referred to as "the Musketeer" twice in this story.
Next appearance in The Twelve (Marvel, 2008 series) #1, in which he was given the name "Roy Chambers", although he has no civillian name in this story.
The Masterworks edition lists the artist as unknown; in his extended online notes, Michael J. Vassallo comments that "The art is unknown but wild speculation is that this could be an early appearance of Carmine Infantino and/or even Gil Kane." Given the phrasing, this speculation is best left in the notes and not in the credits where they would appear too definitive, even with question marks.
Only appearance. At the end, Roko addresses the readers and asks them to write to him.
The Masterworks edition lists Alderman as penciler and the inker unknown, while Who's Who lists Alderman as penciler and inker.
At the end there is a blurb asking readers to write in if they would like to see more of Gypo and Bobby.
While the Masterworks contents only credits Winiarski with pencils, Vassallo's introduction refers to him as the "artist" with some inks by Don Rico, which implies that Winiarski likely at least partially inked the feature.
This feature was called "Corporal Dix" in the previous issue. The Masterworks edition lists writer and artist as unknown.
Writer verification and letterer credit added by Craig Delich 2012-4-6.
The cover of Atomic Comics #2 swiped from splash page of this story. Ink credit according to Doc Vassalo. The Masterworks edition also lists an unknown as an additional inker, but Vassallo's extended notes published online only mention Klein. In the published introduction, he mentions that Klein may have done background pencils.
