Indexer Notes

JVJ has Homer Fleming, and it compares very well with a signed page from DC's "Buck Marshall, Range Detective" and one from Gilberton's "Tom Brown's School Days". He is not credited to Charlton Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
Continued in next issue
This is the only story for the "Bill Bent Border Sheriff" feature -- it's a two-part story over two issues, but only one story.

Indexer Notes

JVJ has "Thompson ?" on this, but not very much like his two signed stories in New Heroic Comics #90. Another suggestion by JVJ is "more like Lee Ames", but he has hands with "interupted" lines between the fingers (Avon's "King Solomon's Mines"), and that is not present here. Inking here also has more black shadings.
