Indexer Notes

Bob Butts is credited on Rod Cameron by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, both on pencil and ink. The art here is identical to some original pages credited to Butts, one from "Copper Canyon" (credited by Jerry Bails), in Motion Picture Comics, and some from "Bob Swift" # 3. (He is credited working on "Bob Swift" by Jerry Bails too.)
The other stories in "Bob Swift" also have these same smiling faces with long chin, but the faces have no resemblance to a signed story in "Pay-Off " #1, 1948, so there could be a misplaced credit on the originals, or Butts changed very much his style in two years.
Boyd Magers has Clem Weisbecker as artist on Rod Cameron, but the realistic horses in this issue are far from the crude ones by Weisbecker ("Jungle Girl" #1). His are very similar to the horses in Bill Boyd Western, with large snout and oversized hooves. Very uncertain credits.
