The art here is identical to the Pfeufer's Mix story in Western Hero #105.

Synopsis
The rooting, tooting gun-toter, Tex Brodie from Texas helps Monte catch the Crothers Gang.

Indexer Notes

The action here, the jeans and boots of Monte, and peculiar gunsmoke with a hole in the middle are mostly found in Pfeufer's stories. The inking must be by John Jordan, as it matches quite well his signed work on "The Cadet" in Target Comics #8, 1943.
