Characters
Wild Bill Pecos; Lobo

Indexer Notes

The cover is a partial fake. The story in the comic has a different title (The Three Great Tasks) and Wild Bill Pecos does not appear in it.

Most probably the work of Shores when looking at the horse and faces.

Indexer Notes

Faces with small narrow noses and round cheeks are very probably the work of Lawrence. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

Long faces and the extremely broad brims of the hats make this the work of Luster. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Compare with his many Black Diamond Western stories.
