formerly attributed to Al Bryant
Pete Riss is also very doubtful. None of his faces. Looks more like Anthony Cataldo by the movement of figures.

Indexer Notes

Title from cover. Art is not Al Bryant. Bryant left comics in 1947 per Bails' Who's Who.
Neither is it Pete Riss. Faces and movement on page 3 are like Cataldo's signed Lefty Jim story in Crown Comics #16, and also faces, hats in sideview and horses with clumsy hooves and legs are the same as in #16. Especially faces on page 7. He vary very much in his drawing, even in signed stories in the same issue.
