- The art style was that of Alden McWilliams, making this his first appearance as artist on the series. However, there was disagreement as to who drew the next issue, TOS comic: "Prophet of Peace", which seemed to be more in the style of series artist Alberto Giolitti. If done by Giolitti, then that would have been Giolitti’s last of 33 issues, and then this story would be McWilliams’ first of 22 issues. McWilliams’ first printed credit appeared in issue 47, TOS comic: "This Tree Bears Bitter Fruit".
