Indexer Notes

reprinted from Fighting Western pulp magazine May 1950 issue.
Wally Wood is credited on pencil and ink on "Western Crime Busters" by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the art is also very similar to Sid Check, who seems to have imitated Wood, especially his girls. Similar artwork, like profiles and girls, in other issues in this series are credited to Wood.
Wood may be credited in the pulp magazine.
