Indexer Notes

Title taken from contents page.
Anderson is credited to this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. 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. He had many Nyoka, Red Gaucho and also Mr. Scarlet stories. Compare faces with his credited Red Gaucho in Master Comics #11.
