Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Tuska. Some of it may look like him, and some suggest that the pencils could be Campbell and another inker, but very uncertain. The artist here is even referred to by Bill Black as the "mystery artist". Campbell is credited to Lash LaRue both at Charlton and Fawcett by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, Tuska only at Fawcett.

Indexer Notes

Frank Doyle is one of the artists credited to this series by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Compared with artwork in Ranger Comics # 41, credited to Doyle, this is identical on his incredibly awful horses. Just that is enough, but the awkward movement of people running is also identical to his art in other credited comics in GCD. Art ID by Steinar Ådland January 2011.
