    Cover by Bob Fujitani. Stories and art by Mort Meskin and John Belfi. Outlaws, gunfighters, and tales of the Old West - some true, and others merely legends. The story of notorious outlaw Billy the Kid provides an appropriate launch to Hillman's "true" tales of the West. Marshal Tom Smith brings order to lawless Abilene, Kansas by banning guns from the town limits. Crack shot Banty West quits his cowpoke job and sets out to join the dreaded Doolin Gang. Billy The Kid; Tom Smith - The Marshall Who Put Teeth in the Law!; Saga of Banty West; Tombstone Tale; Third Degree Chant. 48 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.

  • Issue #NN
    Western Killers (1948) NN

    No number, not dated (c. early 50's). The cover is reprinted from Western Killers #63 (March 1949) with some alterations, such as the removal of the Fox logo. However, the interior pages are from Range Riders #1 (1950). For unknown reasons, it seems apparent that this cover was reprinted expressly for the purpose of binding it to unsold copies of Range Rider #1. The practice of binding new covers to unsold copies for resale is not unheard of from this time period. NOTE: First story page is missing. Normally, it would have been printed on the inside front cover of Range Rider's #1, but the new Western Killers cover replaces it with a chewing gum ad.
    "Showdown at Rancho Nuevo" (9 pages, originally 10), "Knots" illustrated filler on tying knots, "Baggataway" text story (2 pg), "Cactus Nell's Dangerous Gamble", Range Busters in "Vanishing Gold", and "The Saga of John Wesley Hardin". 36 pages, FC. Cover price $0.10.
