Indexer Notes

Pete Riss is credited on several titles for Fawcett by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but not on Tex Ritter.
The movement of the figures, and the small narrow eyes far apart are identical to the credited Pete Riss story in "Adventures Into the Unknown" #21, ACG, and the horses are drawn exactely like the one in his credited story in "Adventures Into the Unknown" #44.
