Indexer Notes

Cataldo is credited only on ink by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the puppet-like movement of figures is quite similar to the signed story "Lefty Jim-U.S. Marshal" in Crown Comics #16, so he may have done the pencilling too. Also the horses are similar.

Characters:
Ibis; Taia; Mismar; The Fire King
Synopsis:
Ibis fights the Fire King.

Indexer Notes

The artwork is so similar to signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics #53, like hands, faces and figure movement, and inking of muscles, that this is very probably his work. He is credited on this feature at this period by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
