Indexer Notes

Art submitted on September 20, 1946. The first appearance of Mooseface McElk. Carl Barks: "I'm pretty sure he was the invention of an MGM writer and artist who was one of Western's most prolific contributors in those days. ... I believe his name was Gil Turner [it was] but I'm very hazy at remembering names. ..." (August 1, 1970 letter to Michael Barrier). Notes and synopsis by Michael Barrier from "Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book" (M. Lilien, 1982).
