Indexer Notes

Starr is credited on working for ACG by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and is spotted by his faces with broad mouth, smiling cheeks, bending ears in backview, and a fondness for drawing gloves on most of his characters. He drew most of the Bantam Buckaroo stories for ACG.

Indexer Notes

Moritz is credited on various features for ACG by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He had most of the Injun Jones stories in Blazing West. He is not to be mistaken by his very special lines inside the ears, and faces in close up with many thin inklines. Also his horses are special, with small gaping heads and many thin inklines on them too.
