Indexer Notes

Since Fred Harman used ghost artists on the Red Ryder comic book, this one could be by John Hampton. The horses seems very similar to some in a Gene Autry Whitman book. The heavy inking may be an imitation of Fred Harmon. He is credited to Red Ryder in Jerry Bails' in Who's Who. Art ID Steinar Ådland (December 2010).
