Indexer Notes

The faces of some characters, with large noses and visible teeth must be Sultan's work.

Original indexer had Charles Sultan for both pencils and inks, but the JVJ index card attached to the scanned version online credits Sultan with pencils and George Tuska with inks.

The Who's Who indicates that Sultan and Tuska never worked on this feature nor does any extant evidence prove that they did. Pencil credit has a ? added.

Father Patriot is costumed.

Indexer Notes

Last appearance of Dynamic Boy [Kent Banning]; he is not Dynamic Man's later partner.

Madden is credited on Dynamic Boy by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and some of the the grotesque faces with long fangs and a special cheek bone line, and also the peculiar leg work are all identical to Madden's work on the signed story of Mother Hubbard in Bulls Eye Comics #11.

Initials "WM" appear on a radio station microphone on page 3.
