There is uncertainty in the pencil credit for this cover.
The 1998 Jack Kirby Checklist and Jack Kirby Collector state Jack Kirby pencils.

Greg Theakston states Joe Simon and Harry Mendryk's blog feels the pencils are by Joe Simon.

Indexer Notes

Previous indexer credited Jill Elgin. Elgin took over Girl Commandos from Barbara Hall some time in 1943. As Hall is credited with the next issue's Girl Commandos, and this issue is dated in 1942, it's almost certainly Hall and definately not Elgin.
