Indexer Notes

Per Nick Caputo, the cover is based on Mystic #41, November 1955, possibly incorporating Burgos' original backgrounds. The two main figures and the creature are likely penciled by Ron Wilson with corrections by Marie Severin. Previous indexer credited Win Mortimer on pencils and inks.
