Indexer Notes

Elkan is credited on pencil and ink on Bill Boyd by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He can be spotted by the faces, and long hair in the neck and under the hat in front. The horses are much more realistic than the ones credited as uncertain to Pete Riss.

Indexer Notes

Tomsey is credited on westerns for Fawcett by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and some square jawed faces, and movements looks like his credited work on "Lance O'Casey" in Whiz Comics #134 and #136. Probably his work. Artwork similar to "The Ominous Door" story in Bill Boyd #5.
