Indexer Notes

Bjorklund drew the western feature "Tex Granger" for Parents' Magazine Press, several stories for Hillman 1951-53, and the western feature "The Hawk" for Ziff-Davis. He can be spotted by his rugged faces and fine horses. Art ID by Steinar Ådland, April 2011.

Indexer Notes

McCann has other stories in Airboy Comics, and several Classics Illustrated. He is very easy to spot by his long noses and small chins, much black inking, old halfdead faces and very little action.
