Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Parkhurst, but this is the same artwork as on the signed story in the preceding issue, done by Metzner. He is credited on Golden Arrow by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Faces, eyes, horses and especially the long "wet looking" hair of the fiddler are all identical to the signed one.
