Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Witmer Williams ?", but does not match his other credited stories in this features. Compared with Leav's signed story in Power Comics #4, everything matches, face of the policeman, large hands, way of running with high lifted knees and some panels without backgrounds. Only the inking is different.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Bill Quackenbush?", but this is the same art as in #54. Tirman is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and heads in 3/4 backview with streched neck and the jawbone going back behind the ear, even in side view, is peculiar. This can be found in his credited "Mike Gibbs Guerilla" story in Adventure Comics #88. Not Quackenbush, who starts in next issue. Note difference of necks here and in Quackenbush's signed story.

Indexer Notes

That this is Rico can be seen by the way he draws clouds, cumulus or long stratus ones.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Sam Citron?", but this is still the same artist as the previous stories in this feature, Mort Leav. He is credited on pencils for this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and it mathces very well his layout with one panel on several pages without background, just faces or figures, like in his signed story in Wanted Comics #52. Also large hands are to be noticed, and very varied types of faces.
