Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Dime Western, July 1934

What a great issue this looks like, from the Walter Baumhofer cover to the stories on the inside by Walt Coburn, Harry F. Olmsted, Gunnison Steele, Ray Nafziger, Bart Cassidy, Robert E. Mahaffey, and John C. Colohan. It was issues like this, month after month, that made DIME WESTERN one of the best Western pulps of all time.

I see a branding iron in the lower left corner of the cover. Maybe these two were rustlers and an early example of the Bonnie and Clyde team:)

I've been reading a lot of western pulp over the past few years and I've found superior stories often come from Dime Western.

I've heard Star Western acclaimed as the best of the west, but I haven't found the work there as consistently satisfying as Dime.

I'm nowhere near well-read enough to call Dime Western the best western pulp, but it's certainly my favorite.
