Indexer Notes

Story title taken from the cover.

Originally credited "Al Bryant ?", but leaning figures with long upper body and awkward way of standing and walking, as on rubber legs, 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 seems to vary.

Synopsis
A pianist is shot and killed with a poisoned dart while playing on the stage.

Indexer Notes

Tomsey is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and some faces in sideview have similarities with his signed Jackie Law stories in Clue Comics, and also his Kid Click in US Camera Comics, so could be by him. The inking has some resemblence to the many Manhunter and Jester stories in Police Comics, by unknown.

Indexer Notes

So similar art to the previous in this feature that it could be Quackenbush, even with some figures with longer legs than usual. He is credited on pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Uncertain inking when compared with his signed stories.
