Indexer Notes

Incorrect reprint source of Kid Cowboy #8 pointed out by Gary Watson, September 2008.

Compared with Brown's work in Challengers of the Unknown (DC, 19858 series) #17, we can see his way of showing people standing with legs far apart and a little bent in the knees. Also his way of drawing arms in sideview with the thumb up, page one. The same can be found in many renderings of his giant's arms and fingers in Challengers. Also faces in sideview are identical. So this must be Brown. Art ID by Steinar Ådland March 2011.

Script credit suggested by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
