Comment: Username: JVJ Comment: Lots of signatures, too. Kin Platt on Captain Future. Leonard Sansone initials panel 1 on page 5 of Don Davis. Mystico is unknown to me, but seems to much weaker than Sansone as seen in the previous story. L.M. on G-Man Dalton MIGHT be Leo Morey - see below. Scoop Langdon is the first thing I've seen signed by Myrna Gamble. Leo Morey definitely pencils Biff Powers. Inks might be Ralph Cone - cf The Masked Rider which is definitely by Cone. Ray Thayer does Detective Sgt. Burke - at least the credit is there and so was he... Kin Platt signs Happy and Snappy. Quite the treasure trove of data.
