Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Al Carreno. The eyes with high arched upper lid and some short lines below the outer corners, and sometimes hands with lines between fingers that don't go all the way down, page 2, 4 and 5. All good signs of Anderson. He had many Nyoka, Mr. Scarlet and also Lance O'Casey stories. Compare faces with his credited Red Gaucho in Master Comics #10.

Indexer Notes

story continues in next issue.
Originally credited to Al Carreno, but it is Ricca. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and can be spotted by his rounded faces with squinting eyes and a small dent under the middle of the chin. Later he had a bit more open eyes. He drew Jim Dolan in Slam-Bang Comics.
