Indexer Notes

Ziegler is credited on JMB by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and is unique in his art. Cowboys in sleeveless shirts, faces with bushy black eyebrows and long pointed noses, likewise bushy sideburns, ears with a black S or Z, and some heavy inking. Never to be confused with any other artist.

Characters:
Johnny Mack Brown; Rebel (horse)
Synopsis:
Johnny sets out alone after rustlers.

Indexer Notes

Dan Spiegle is credited on pencils on JMB by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and can be spotted by his variety of faces, some with potato noses, and often short, stout figures. Not quite certain about inking, but it seems a bit like Ziegler's heavy brushlines.
