Synopsis
Allan Slade is framed for a murder and manages to run away from the jail.

Indexer Notes

The puppet-like movement of figures is quite similar to the Cataldo signed story "Lefty Jim-U.S. Marshal" in Crown Comics (McCombs, 1946 series) #16, so he may have done the pencilling too. Also the horses are similar.

Synopsis
Bruno, the sculptor, has found a way to make his statue of a centaur alive.

Indexer Notes

The artwork is so similar to signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics (Fiction House, 1940 series) #53, like hands, faces and figure movement, and inking of muscles, that this is very probably his work.

Script credit from Martin O'Hearn.
