Indexer Notes

Adapted from the novel KING SOLOMON'S MINES by H. Rider Haggard.
Originally credited to Lee Ames, but the art is identical to Astarita's signed stories in "Real Life Comics" #53, "Intimate Confessions" #5 and "Realistic Romances"#8 (IW-edition). Compare the faces, ears, eyes and hands, and also compare the signed Lee Ames "Dusty Rhodes" stories in "Fight Comics" #13 and #19. Faces, hands and "wet look" inking are all very different from this Astarita art.
