Indexer Notes

Pat and Pete are named in Animal Comics #28.

Red Flame, the Wild Horse King begins as a My Friend Flicka knock-off. Du Bois had done many adaptations, so that would have been a natural for him. But, like the plot in Finding Forrester, he makes the story he tells his own, and it continues as a strip within a feature ("Tell us another Red Flame story").

It presages Du Bois's Hi-Yo Silver series (with the boy and girl, on the wagon train that the Lone Ranger is with, pestering him for more stories about Silver).
