Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Dan Zolnerowich ?", but the close up heads in 3/4 backview are exactely identical to Winter's signed Kangaroo Man story in Choice Comics #3, and especially the credited story in Planet Comics #60. Also some figures standing with legs far apart. The inking is unlike his signed stories. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

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