Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Ruben Moreira ?". When comparing the close up faces of the villain with his big teeth, with the art sample of Sultan on Who's Who, it must be him on this story. Sultan is credited on "Mr. E" (reprint from 1941) by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Not always easy to keep these two artists apart at this period.
