Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Tuska. Some of it may look like him, and some suggest that the pencils could be Campbell and another inker, but very uncertain. The artist here is even referred to by Bill Black as the "mystery artist". Campbell is credited to Lash LaRue both at Charlton and Fawcett by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, Tuska only at Fawcett. Compared with artwork in Authentic Police Cases # 8, credited to Tuska, this story has some similarities on faces and inking to "Authentic Police Cases" #8, but none of his square rounded faces with round eyes are present.

Indexer Notes

Howard Boughner is credited to Trader Tom in Jerry Bails' Who's Who. This filler seems a little different to original Boughner scan from "Jed and Ned", but both with such simple style that it could be the same artist. Art ID by Steinar Ådland January 2011.

Howard Boughner is not credited to Molasses Mouth in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but this filler seems similar to original Boughner scan from "Jed and Ned". Art ID by Steinar Ådland January 2011.

Synopsis
He is not very popular for getting under everybody's skin. He is a tatoo artist.

Lash LaRue; Tolley (stage manager); Gilch (robber)
Synopsis
The stagecoach line has suffered several hold ups lately, and Lash has taken a job in the office under a different name so he can get a lead on the robberies. It must be an inside job.
