Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Ruben Moreira?", and he 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 #16. He is credited only on ink by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the layout of figure movement and horses are quite identical to the signed story, so he may have done it all.

Ibis the Invincible; Taia; Santa Claus's reindeer and sleigh; Nanoki, polar bear god
Synopsis
When an ongoing story on the legend of the Ghost Ship threatens to break up another date between Ibis and Taia, Ibis teleports them both to the ship so that Taia can get her story fast and still make their dinner date.

Indexer Notes

The artwork is very similar to signed Walter Palais stories in Planet Comics #53, like hands, faces, lines inside the ears, and figure movement, and it is very probably his work. He is credited on this feature at this period by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
Writer credit from Martin O'Hearn.
