Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Al Carreno. The eyes with high arched upper lid and some short lines below the outer corners, and sometimes hands with lines between fingers that doesn't go all the way down, page 2, 4 and 5. All good signs of Anderson. He had many Nyoka, Mr. Scarlet and also Lance O'Casey stories. Compare faces with his credited Red Gaucho in Master Comics #8-11.
