Indexer Notes

Originally Credited "Lee Elias ?", and the art is not far off, but it is Starr, the only artist credited on Bantam Buckaroo by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. This story compares well with his signed Bantam story in Blazing West #18, faces and gloved hands in particular, and the "porcupine" mustachio of old Mike.

"One of the most notorious badmen..." (Table of Contents)

Indexer Notes

Ed Moritz is credited on various features for ACG by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Best recognised by the faces with many small thin inklines, and especially the very peculiar lines inside the ears.

["It was only an old buffalo hide"] (Table of Contents)

Moritz drew most of the Injun Jones stories. The many thin inklines on horses are of notice. Notes as for the previous Moritz credit.
