Indexer Notes

Especially the face in close up on the last page is a sure signs of Hart, a bit heavy nose with black shade, like his K-9 story in "Dynamic Comics" #3. Also the movement in fistfights.

The faces with round eyes, and the very exited movements, is probably Madden, who is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
