Indexer Notes

Reworked from "Annie Oakley and the Lady Killer" from Cowboy Western #64. Annie Oakley has a mask added and her clothing is reworked into a version of the Black Phantom's costume. The rest of the art is the same. All the dialogue and captions are re-lettered and rewritten, though the plot remains the same.
