Indexer Notes

Art identical to Zolne's credited Swing Sisson story in Feature Comics #111 and #119. Faces, way of standing with a bend in the hips and knees. Also the shuffling walking or running are special. The art has some resemblance to Alex Blum, but leg movement is quite different.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Sam Citron?", but the art is identical to Zolne's credited Swing Sisson story in Feature Comics #111 and #119. Faces, way of standing with a bend in the hips and knees. Also the shuffling walking or running are special, and the grinning face in the last panel. Zolne is credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who
