http://martinohearn.blogspot.com/2014/03/pete-riss-mahunter.html, and
http://martinohearn.blogspot.com/2012/03/superman-riss-or-citron.html, and comparing this story to Citron’s known work on Classics Illustrated 10 [HRN 140] and the DC Mr. District Attorney series, this art credit has been changed to Pete Riss.
