Synopsis
Greedy men want the war to continue and will prevent Chief Ocalab from reaching the peace conference.

Indexer Notes

The puppet-like movement of figures is quite similar to the Cataldo-signed story "Lefty Jim-U.S. Marshal" in Crown Comics (McCombs, 1946 series) #16, so he may have done the pencilling too.

Synopsis
Ibis fights the Fire King.

Indexer Notes

The artwork is so similar to signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics (fiction House, 1940 series) #53, like hands, faces and figure movement, and inking of muscles, that this is very probably his work.
