Indexer Notes

Artist credits from "Action! Mystery! Thrills! Comic Book Covers of the Golden Age: 1933-45" (Fantagraphics, 2011). Character on cover is not one of the featured characters inside. There is no reason to think that Kirby ever worked for Jason Comic Art. Therefore this is almost certainly a swipe.
