Indexer Notes

last appeared in MASTER COMICS #?
Originally credited to Clem Weisbecker, but the artwork here is identical to Anderson's the "Mr. Scarlet and Pinky" story in Wow Comics #34. That story has "Drawn by Harry Anderson" printed just underneath the panels on page one, as many other stories in Wow Comics had at that time. Compare the faces in front view, and especially the way Anderson draws the closed mouth, with two lines that don't meet at the center, also the hand movement, with short lines that don't go all the way between the fingers. The very thin eyebrows high above the eyes are also to notice. Anderson is credited on Nyoka by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but not Weisbecker.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Clem Weisbecker, but it is not him. Comparing with his signed story in Black Hood Comics #9, this Nyoka story lack all of his heavy black inking and faces with big eyes and skewed, gaping mouth, and has none of his swift movements of figures. Neither is it Harry Anderson as in the two first chapters.

Indexer Notes

Chester Whitehorn (1923-1996) was not a pen name as has been speculated, but a freelance writer, who wrote text pages for Marvel and Fawcett, and edited SF and celebrity magazines.
