Tumlinson is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the art is identical to his signed cover of Kid Colt Outlaw #15. Very clean and careful brush ink-lines.

Characters
Calamity Kate [Patricia Layne]; Waco Johnny
Synopsis
Waco Johnny tried to live straight, but his father's life of outlawry threw a shadow over him.

Indexer Notes

Rosenberger is credited on pencils and ink for Orbit Publications by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He can be recognized by his distinct faces with rather small features, and "soft" movement with actors wondering what is going on. He is best known for his many stories in "Adventures of the Fly" and "Adventures of the Jaguar" for Archie.

Nick Caputo believes someone other than Rosenberger inked the story.
