Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Al Bryant ?", but tilting figures with a 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 Zolne. He is credited on both pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but inking may vary.

Indexer Notes

Quackenbush is credited on pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the many short figures and narrow heads point to him. Uncertain inking when compared with his signed stories.

The same art as in several Manhunter stories in Police Comics credited to Riss. Notice the flying figure getting a punch, which appears in many of those stories too.
