Indexer Notes

Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title, compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott states: "White Wolf Rides East (synopsis). 14p. For War Eagle, stock. Sent March 26, 1950."; Origin story of how White Wolf first meets and wins Moon Maiden; their subsequent marriage becomes the setting for an ongoing series of stories. Since the origin story was written for the Dell comic, not written specifically for March of Comics (as Du Bois did for, e.g., Tarzan or Space Family Robinson MoC stories), the 14 pages as written were broken up into 28 half-pages. ~Dave Porta

Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title, compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott states (p.111): "White Wolf Rides East (extra pages). 10/2 p. For Roy Rogers Comics, stock. Sent June 22, 1953." [NOTE: should be "for Indian Chief March of Comics"] ~Dave Porta
