Indexer Notes

The artwork is very similar to signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics (Fiction House, 1940 series) #53, like hands, faces and figure movement, and inking of muscle.

The Birdmen (Table of Contents: 5)

Golden Arrow; White Wind (horse); Chief Hawk Elk
Synopsis
White crooks disguised as messengers of the Bird God come to claim the golden tomahawk offering from the mountain tribe.

Indexer Notes

Moreira and Cataldo can often be hard to keep apart at this time. Compare the rather stiff movement of figures, pointed hat brims in sideview, and the horses with his signed story "Lefty Jim-U.S. Marshal" in Crown Comics (McCombs, 1946 series) #16.
