Indexer Notes

The layout with many heads halfway inside the panel borders, and shouting faces are very similar to many of his credited stories, like in T-Man Comics and Nyoka.
His peculiar lines outside corners of eyes are missing, but he is only credited on pencils on this feature (Frontier Marshal) by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
