Synopsis
Bull's gang has sprung him from jail, and Golden Arrow has got a plan to smoke him out from hiding.

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 Cataldo's signed story "Lefty Jim-U.S. Marshal" in Crown Comics (McCombs, 1946 series) #16.

Ibis; Taia; Karnak
Synopsis
Ibis battles Karnak and his Termite Men.

Indexer Notes

The artwork is very similar to signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics (Fiction House, 1940) #53, like hands, faces, lines inside the ears, and figure movement, and inking of muscles, and it is very probably his work.

Script credit from Martin O'Hearn.
