Indexer Notes

The horses of Meagher are extremely elegant. The inking makes them appear shiny with the few inklines, or heavy clean blacks on muscles.

Indexer Notes

Joe Certa, John Belfi and Fred Guardineer is credited to Durango Kid in Jerry Bails' Who's Who. This is Certa. Guardineer (Durango Kid #20) has very small eyes on his horses and faces, and gun holsters usually without any straps across, where Certa and Belfi (Best of the West #4) has one or two. Belfi often assisted Certa in inking, but if you notice the hairline under the hat of Durango, it is a broad V-shape, when Belfi in #4 has more waves. So this must be inked by Certa. Art ID by Steinar Ådland December 2010.
