Indexer Notes

Bill Molno is credited on both pencil and ink on Wild Frontier by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
Artwork similar to his story in Toby's "Tales of Horror" #1, "The Ugliest Man in the World", and credited on both pencil and ink to Molno at Lewis Wayne Gallery of original comic art. Nick Caputo is uncertain of the Molno inking identification.

Synopsis
Two white bandits use the hollow totem pole of the Canuga tribe to speak from and demand gold offerings.

Indexer Notes

Nicholas is credited on pencil and Trapani on ink in Wild Frontier by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the art is very similar to their signed story in Cowboy Western #67. The inking is a little uncertain, as Trapani has more zig-zag eyebrows. Nick Caputo is uncertain of the Nicholas pencils and questions the Trapani inking credit.

Synopsis

Indexer Notes

The close up faces resembles Molno's faces in the Daniel Boone story, and the inking looks like Alascia's work. Both are credited on Wild Frontier Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
