Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Clem Weisbecker. The eyes with high arched upper lid and some short lines below the outer corners, and sometimes hands with lines between fingers that don't go all the way down, page 2, 4 and 5. All good signs of Anderson, who is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He had many Nyoka, Red Gaucho and also Mr. Scarlet stories. Compare faces with his credited Red Gaucho in Master Comics #8-11.
