The Kubert (Hawkman) and Infantino (Flash, Ghost Patrol, Black Canary) art in these stories makes for a quick fluid read. Dialogue is mostly window dressing. Even the Paul Reinman\Bob Oksner work with the 5pcs. Atom filler is respectful.

Carmine Infantino is credited for the cover. Lee Elias art in the Flash. Infantino art in the Ghost Patrol and Black Canary. Kubert art in the Hawkman. Paul Reinman, who is best known for the Green Lantern, does a fine job with the Atom. Martin Naydel who is best as a cartoonist does the two page Flash Facts filler pages.
