Saddle, Indian Joe. Indian Joe Saddle was created by Walter Weintz and appeared in a number of stories in Exciting Detective, beginning with “The Baby Bomber Saboteurs” (Exciting Detective, Spring 1942).

“Indian Joe” Saddle is a Native American (specific people undefined) F.B.I. agent. With his partner, “Big Tim” Marlow, he investigates threats to the war effort, in one case going undercover as construction workers at the Long Island assembly plant of Lucas bombers. Saddle uses a Colt .38 and is hard-boiled and not stereotypical in any way.
