Most probable Whitman. Face of Firehair in profile and figure match his art in Jungle Comics #132, and eyes of the indian, and also the horses. He is credited on covers for Fiction House by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

title from cover

Originally credited "Bob Lubbers?", but not his faces or figures. Compare with his stories in Firehair #11. Webb and Disbrow are credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the close up face on page 4 is by Disbrow. Most probably him as inker and Webb as penciller.

Script credit suggested by the Who's Who.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Bob Lubbers?", but not his faces or figures. Compare with his stories in Firehair #11.

Some faces with large mouth and wild eyes look like Jay Disbrow on pages 3 and 4.
