6 pg art Syd Shores pencils attributed
Christopher Rule pencils guess
Notes: I don't think Shores is here. The layouts are all wrong and much too simplified to be his. I believe this is Rule taking over the art chores for this issue. - JVJ

Notes: I don't think Shores is here. Rule is copying Shores figures so it looks a bit like him, but he's staging them in layouts that just aren't right. - JVJ

Christopher Rule pencils guess
Notes: I just can't see Shores doing such minimal layouts and simplified storytelling - despite all the "tells" that show up pointing towards his style. I think Rule is a damn good mimic when he wants to be. - JVJ
