Pencils tentatively credited to Sam Citron through consensus art identification on the GCD-Main discussion list (September 10, 2013). Name changed from Citron to Riss due to extensive confusion of Riss and Citron's credits throughout time. Citron is not listed in Bails' as ever drawing Kid Eternity. (April 25, 2014).
