Synopsis
General Kimonak and his staff plot a conspiracy to destroy the reputation of the Green Turtle, which, in turn, would destroy the Chinese people's faith in the Turtle. This is accomplished by a Japanese officer donning the garb of the Turtle and flying a plane similar to his to cause many Chinese guerrilla deaths.

Indexer Notes

Allison is credited by Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. in issue #1 on this feature, and the art is similar. He has a funny way of drawing running people, with legs really stepping out and which is found in some of his credited Chameleon stories in Target Comics too.

Indexer Notes

Art ID suggested by Gary Watson, June 2008.
The artwork is similar to the previous issues, in which Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. has a wild guess at Gil Kane and/or Leonard Starr. That is Kane when he was Eli Katz.
Writer and art credits verified by Leonard Starr in Alter Ego #110 (June 2012). Formerly Dick Briefer ?

Battefield is credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the quite simple lines and square figures suggests so.
