Indexer Notes

Faces, figures in bird view, hands and foreshortening movements of figures, and many close ups are all very much like Rosenberger's work on The Fly #13 and others in that series. His protuding lower lips seems to be changed by the inker, but hints can be seen on page 5.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Sam Citron, but the outstretched leg movement and especially some V-shaped faces with eyes far apart must be Riss, and the inking is not far from his signed story in My Romantic Adventure #56.
