Synopsis
Two stage robbers masquerade as demons to scare Silas Cain away from his barn so that they could use it for a hideout.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Edmond Good, but this is Elkan's work. Good has more rounded faces with very visible eyes, while Elkan's are more weary or sleepy, and not so "eyecatching". Also the inking is different, Elkan is more "hasty" with much black brushlines, while Good has more even inklines. Another difference is in the profiles of Good, with lips and mouth like Johnny Hazard.

Script credit from Martin O'Hearn.
