Indexer Notes

Unknown artist from Fawcett's early 1950s. Drew the “Ibis the Invincible” feature in the last issues of WHIZ COMICS(#139 - #155). Tillmann Courth spotted him in these books and will keep looking.
"Jokerface" keeps drawing minor characters with cartoony elongated faces.

Writer credits by Martin O'Hearn.
