Genre:
western-frontier
Characters:
Golden Arrow; White Wind (horse); John Davy (landgrabber)
Synopsis:
Golden Arrow fights landgrabbers that take advantage of the locust swarms heading for the valley.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Ruben Moreira?", and he and Cataldo can often be hard to keep apart at this time. Compare the rather stiff movement of figures, pointed hat brims in sideview, and the horses with his signed story "Lefty Jim-U.S. Marshal" in Crown Comics #16. Cataldo is credited only on ink by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the layout of figure movement and horses are all so identical to the signed story, that he most probably has done it all.

Indexer Notes

The artwork has many similarities with signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics #52 and #53, like hands, faces and figure movement. He is credited on this feature at this period by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
