Indexer Notes

The eyes with high arched upper lid and some short lines below the outer corners, and sometimes hands with lines between fingers that don't go all the way down, page 2, 4 and 5. are indicators of Anderson. Compare faces with his credited Red Gaucho stories in Master Comics (Fawcett, 1940 series) #8-11.
