Indexer Notes

Artwork is the same as on all the covers of "Tex Ganger" (Parents Inc.), and Bjorklund is credited to Tex Granger in Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Compare gunholsters, horses and faces.
In "Frogman Comics" #6 (Hillman) are two stories; "The Floating Mint" and "Frogman's Pacific Jonah", credited to Lorence Bjorklund. The faces and inklines are identical to this Hawk story, so the artist must be the same, Lorence Bjorklund.
