Indexer Notes

Sultan is credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the many close up faces with his "bulging" eyes is most probably by him.

Indexer Notes

Anderson is credited on all artwork on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but only on pencils on Frontier Marshal, in fact the same feature. His special eyes with short lines on outer corner are not so evident here, so inking uncertain.
