Edmond Good is credited on Monte Hale by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Best spotted by his quite rounded faces with very visible eyes, and lively layout with much movement.

Indexer Notes

Frank is credited to Gabby Hayes by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and he also drew Captain Midnight in the 40's. He has some peculiar faces with long eyebrows, wrinkling nose and a very small round mouth, and folds in clothing is very scribbly with many short lines, as if there is nobody inside.

Characters:
Monte Hale; Pardner (horse); A.C. Tuttle (vaudeville manager); Jud Warble (tenderfoot cowboy)
Synopsis:
Monte gets on slippery ice when escorting a tenderfoot through the Rockies.

Indexer Notes

The artwork is very similar to Pfeufers Tom Mix stories, movement, gunsmoke with hole in the middle, tight jeans with few wrinkles. The inking is much like Jordan on "The Cadet" in Target Comics #8, 1943, but some faces look more like the baseball cards by Bob Laughlin. He too is credited on Monte Hale by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Uncertain credits.
