In Jerry Bails' Who's Who John Lehti is credited to Tom Corbett in 1953, and the artwork is identical to his series "Tommy of the Big Top". Paul Norris never made any stories. Al McWilliams had the first three in Four Color 1952, Lehti had five 1953,and Frank Thorne three 1954. See Error Report #5660 with attachments. Art ID by Steinar Ådland January 2011
