Certa is credited on Hopalong Cassidy by Jerry Bails' Who's Who. The faces of the crooks, with long mustache, wavy eyebrows and marked cheekbones, is typical of Certa. Very similar to many of his Durango Kid stories.

Indexer Notes

Quinlan is credited on pencils on Hopalong Cassidy by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the art with movement and faces, is very similar to his credited story in Catman #25 and 26a. Inking looks a bit like Elkan, but uncertain.
