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. He is credited only on ink by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the layout of figure movement and horses are quite identical to the signed story, so he could have done it all.
