Indexer Notes

Frank has some peculiar faces with long eyebrows, wrinkling noses and very small round mouths and folds in clothing that are very scribbly with many short lines, as if there is nobody inside.

Monte Hale; Pardner (horse); Sourdough; Buck (crooked cook)
Synopsis
No one wanted to take the place of the missing cook but Monte.

Indexer Notes

The artwork has a bit of similarity to Pfeufer's Tom Mix stories: movement, gunsmoke with hole in the middle, tight jeans with few wrinkles.

The inking is much like Jordan on "The Cadet" in Target Comics #8, 1943.
