Indexer Notes

Art identification from Jim Vadeboncoeur Jr. index card. A forum post at http://comicbookplus.com/forum/index.php/topic,10778.0/topicseen.html identifies Paul S. Newman with this to say "The script reminds me strongly of ultra-prolific comics writer Paul S. Newman. It’s the rhythm of the dialogue and the odd choice of boldfaced words. The story is a lot like Newman’s scripts for Dell Westerns…built about an unusual gimmick, efficiently told without being too exciting. It’s nice to see that the ex-con really is going straight…which incidentally is a theme Newman used several times." Whose Who identifies Newman as being at DS/PL around this time.
