Notes

This cover is based on a panel from page 5 of the story 'Stranger Beware', reprinted from The Rider (Ajax-Farrell) #1 (March 1957). In that panel, the native American attacks with an empty fist that looks like it should be holding a knife. However, 'Stranger Beware' is a reprint of the pre-Code story 'Bloody Trails' from The Lone Rider (Ajax-Farrell) #13 (April 1953) in which there is a knife, later been deleted to satisfy the Comics Code. [From research by Marcus Brazil.]
