Indexer Notes

This does not appear to be Guardineer's typical style. Compare with the final, signed, story in this issue. Whoever the penciller is each page appears to have a different inker. John Giunta's hand is suggested by page 2, possibly Ray Willner's on page 5, and surely Frank Frazetta inks page 6.
