Indexer Notes

Thanks to the GCD-Main mailing list, this artist must be Bolle, and compared with his work on Red Mask at this period, it matches, especially the drawing of the very realistic hats is similar, and inking matches his much later work on UFO Flying Saucers for Gold Key. Can find no match on the inking around 1954, but seeing how he varied and developed his drawing, the inking could be his too.
