Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Al Carreno.
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, hats and faces, and particularly the horses.
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 story, so the artist must be the same, Lorence Bjorklund.
JVJon at Digital Comics Museum credits this story to Bjorklund with "?".
