Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Jesse Marsh with a "?" on inking, but it is the work of Tony Sgroi. He had most of the Range Rider stories, and many in Spin & Marty. He is best to spot by his very accurate and elegant horses and the rather "angry" faces with marked cheekbones, narrow or angry eyes and often scowling mouth and a little skewed jawline. Also his use of emotion lines round the head can be noticed.
