This is one of Alfredo Alcala's first efforts at Marvel. He had previously done a lot of mystery and war stories at DC and was probably the most popular of the Phillippine artists to show up during the 1970s(though Marvel usually wouldn't let them on the superhero titles). Comic publishers tended to use the Phillippine artists on lower-selling titles because the exchange rate for art was rather cheap. B&W magazine publishers like Warren and Skywald used Spanish art studios for the same purpose.
