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.

Synopsis:
Injun Jones is accused of selling rifles to the Indians.

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.

Synopsis:

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Lee Elias ?", but it is the artist that made most of the Bantam stories, Leonard Starr. He is the only one credited on Bantam Buckaroo by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. The artwork match his signed story in Blazing West #18, faces, hats and the hands with gloves. Elias has more rounded faces and lips, much like Milton Caniff or Frank Robbins.
