Indexer Notes

This is a reprint where the feature name was changed, probably because Charlton did not have license for the character. "BART WADE" does not match the rest of the lettering in captions or word balloons. Gene Reed - 12/8/2010. Needs to be confirmed that this is a reprint of a story from "Cody of the Pony Express" #1

Indexer Notes

Images of Blaze look like John Wayne. Differences in lettering whenever "BLAZE" appears in captions or word balloons would indicate that this is a reprint with lettering changes. Gene Reed - 12/8/2010
