Indexer Notes

Tilting figures with long upper body and awkward way of standing and walking, some wild eyes, and also broad shoulders and narrow head on stretched neck are all pointing to Zolnerowich. He is credited on both pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but inking varies, so uncertain.

Indexer Notes

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. Most probably him on this story.
