Indexer Notes

On inside front and back covers in black and white.
The noses high up in frofiles, sketchy inking and the leggings are all identical to Maxon's story in #6. He worked for Dell on many Young Hawk stories in Lone Ranger Comics. Also made some early Tarzan stories.

Chief White Eagle (first appearance)

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Jon Small. The artwork here is, however, identical to the Gollub credited story "Blunt Arrow Boy" in Four Color #290, the first issue in this series. The realistic horses are similar. Small's uses much more black in his inking, also on faces, which are quite different. Gollub's a bit rounder with more visible nostrils, wavy mouth and often smiling, which can also be seen in his credited art in "North to Alaska" Four Color #1155, or in Gene Autry's Champion #5. Gollub's inking is much more sketchy than Small's signed stories in Chief #2, but with lesser black.
