NotesArt previously attributed to Martin Filchock, but Jim Amash of the Timely-Atlas list spoke with Filchock and confirmed that he never worked on the Phantom Rider nor with Jack Cole. This arguably calls into question the Cole credit as well, which was from the same source (Henry Andrews 2009-03-16).
