Indexer Notes

On page 2 panel 2, the Cheyenne Kid's horse's name has been re-lettered from "Nightwind" to "Whirlwind". On page 4 panel 4, however, "Nightwind" remains unaltered. This may have been attempted because the Rawhide Kid, fairly popular at the time, also had a horse named Nightwind.

Once again, as in this issue's first Apache Kid story, "Nightwind" has been re-lettered. On page 3 panels 8 and 10, "Nightwind" becomes "Whirlwind". Amazingly, on the same page, panels 4 and 6, "Nightwind" remains unchanged.
