Indexer Notes

McCann is easy to recognise by his long noses, heavy shading and much black inking, like a long gloomy funeral. He also drew "The Conspiracy of Pontiac" and "Off on a Comet" in Classics Illustrated. Art ID by Steinar Ådland, March 2011.

Indexer Notes

The horses and the authentic wagons plus the hat and face of the bull whacker must be the work of Bjorklund, who drew Tex Granger for Parents Magazine, and some westerns for St.John and Ziff-Davis, like The Hawk and The Texan.
