Indexer Notes

Frank is credited on pencils and Belfi on ink on Monte Hale by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Uncertain about Belfi, but some faces looks like his, and the inking on other faces more like Frank's work on Captain Midnight #38. So it could be Frank on all.

Monte Hale; Pardner (horse); Doc Blabber (con man); Doc Schmidt; Sneed (con man)
Synopsis:
Monte had to find out if Doc Blabber aimed to save people from the Bubonic Plague or if he just "invented" it.

Indexer Notes

Laughlin is credited on Monte Hale by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and this cartoon like style looks very much like his drawings on baseball cards, the only available samples found.

Synopsis:
When a traveling show of girl dancers and singers are stranded by a crooked manager, they buy a ranch and manage to run it.

Indexer Notes

Edmond Good is credited on Monte Hale by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and his eyes are his best mark, but also the action layout.

Tight Rope to Doom (Table of Contents)

Gabby Hayes / comic story / 4 pages (report information)

Genre:

Characters:
Gabby Hayes; Sly Sam Jones
Synopsis:
Gabby walks on a tight rope for charity.

Indexer Notes

Jack Binder is credited on gabby Hayes by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and some smiling faces, and long figures with rather small heads are found in credited Mary Marvel stories, so this is most probably his work.

Indexer Notes

Elkan is credited on Monte Hale by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and this could be him when comparing some faces with his art in Nyoka, but uncertain.
