Just before he headed back to Marvel to become their Spidey artist and main cover artist for much of the next decade, Gil Kane seems to have soloed on this DC western buried amongst reprints in a 1970 SUPER DC GIANT anthology. Kane's amazing storytelling skills were wasted by having him do more covers than interiors there in the long run.

Bently Wade seems to have been a real writer but no idea on the art here. Well, one source speculates Harry Parkhurst, with whom I'm not familiar. I do like it, though, Raymond swipes and all, and I'm surprised "Neptina" as a name never caught on in real life.

Here's the Golden Age version of Marvel's Ka-Zar. Like many white jungle men in comics--itself almost a sub-genre--he has a "Z" in his name in order to remind the reader that in spite of the fact that he clearly isn't the phenomenally popular Tarzan...he really is Tarzan.

One of the first super-villains to be granted his own series, The Claw is best remembered for his battles with Daredevil and the Silver Streak but in his own series, he also came with his own built-in nemesis, The Ghost. This is credited to the multi-talented Bob Wood who went on to be a bit of villain himself (look him up).
