Genre

Characters
Dynamic Man [Bert McQuade]

Indexer Notes

The artwork with many googly-eyed faces, straight upturned noses, and some protruding lower lips matches Asch's stories in Lawbreakers Suspen Stories, one signed. Also The Voice stories in Feature Comics have some of these googly eyes. Most probably his work, but as he is not confirmed, a question mark.

Indexer Notes

Yankee Boy next appears in DANGER #16 (IW/Super).

Especially the faces with a broad chin and a little dent in the middle are probably signs of Ricca, based on the Ricca sample on Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

The original version of this strip had an advertisement at the bottom (1/4 page), but this version just has blank space. Also, in the second panel, a sign reading "Eat Baby Ruth" (an advertiser in Star Ranger Comics) has been re-lettered to read "Eat at Epp's" (referencing inker Otto Eppers, although the strip does not appear to have otherwise been re-drawn or re-touched).

Indexer Notes

The artwork has much in common with the Black Buccaneer stories in Blaze Comics, which are credited as possible Kane/Starr work by Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. Probable but uncertain.

Jim Vadeboncoeur Jr index card attached to the online scanned version suggests Joey Cavallo for the art.
