Captain Marvel Jr. #38 (May 1946-Capt. Marvel Jr. Haunts the Ghost Vigilantes)

This story combines old west cowboy lore (Buzzardville was active 50 years before placing it in the 1890s) with the beginning of the uranium mining boom of the late 1940s and early 1950s. Also the ghosts represented here are the popular notion of the spirits of dead people haunting their former habitations. The artwork in this story as well as the previous one has consistently rendered backgrounds (perhaps Bob Rogers was the background artist).  Art: Bud Thompson.  Otto Binder, writer
