Credited by JVJon at Digital Comics Museum with a "?".
The artwork is very similar to the signed story "Death in the Desert" in #4. Very marked faces and long hair in the neck, folds in clothing, and everyone wearing trousers tucked into their boots in both stories. That is quite unusual, just look at Hawk.
