Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Dan Zolnerowich ?", but the out-stretched 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.

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.
