Indexer Notes

This artwork compares best with Daly's signed story "Poison Allard's Last Draw" in Western Fighter #2, with the thin cheekline in profile, eyes that really don't look at anything. Also similar to DC's early Aquaman stories on the faces. He changed much from his early drawing in True Comics, but his faces can be recognised, like the Indian on page 34 in True Comics #1.
