Indexer Notes

Moritz is credited on various features for ACG by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He had most of the Injun Jones stories in Blazing West and in this series. He can be best recognised by his peculiar lines inside the ears, and also horses with small gaping heads and many thin inklines on the body. The thin inklines appear on close up faces too.
