Indexer Notes

Originally Credited "Lee Elias ?", and the art is not far off, but it is Starr, the only artist credited on Bantam Buckaroo by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. This story compares well with his signed Bantam story in Blazing West #18, faces and gloved hands in particular, and the "porcupine" mustachio of old Mike.

Indexer Notes

Ed Moritz is credited on various features for ACG by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Best recognized by the faces with many small thin inklines, and especially the very peculiar lines inside the ears.
