Indexer Notes

Pfeufer is credited on pencils and ink on Hopalong by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He can be recognised by his long pointed gun holsters, tight jeans, guns and gunsmoke with a hole in the middle. Also faces and action.

Genre:

Synopsis:
A young rancher surprises her foreman opening her safe, but he knocks her unconcious and puts her on a runaway horse to make it look like an accident when she is killed.

Indexer Notes

Quinlan is credited on pencils on Hopalong by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and this is probably his work, as it has some similarities in faces, hands and movements with his signed work on Catman #25.

Synopsis:
A mad barber is trying to kill Hopalong and Mesquite

Indexer Notes

Steinberg is credited on Hopalong by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. He is also credited on six covers for Hopalong. His work has something in common with Pfeufer, as the gunsmoke with hole in the middle, but his gun holsters are quite different. On the covers they are much broader than Pfeufer's narrow pointed holsters, and with a rounded flap in the middle. His shirts has pocket flaps, while Pfeufer has just a long line across the chest. Also the belt buckle is different from Pfeufer's round ones. Hopalong's leg movement on page 3 is almost an exact copy of his legs on the covers of #6 and #9. Also the horse and rider in panel 4 on page 4 is an exact copy of his cover of #7.

Synopsis:
Hopalong is caught by a gang of outlaws hiding out in a ghost town.

Indexer Notes

Parkhurst is credited on Hopalong by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. The artwork here resembles very well his credited work on Hopalong in Master Comics #42, as the convex profile of the horses, guns and many of the hats. Also the rather flimsy inking. He had many stories with Golden Arrow and also some Kiyotee Kids in Red Ryder Comics.
