Saturday Morning Western Pulp: New Western, August 1950
Lots of the usual red and yellow on this rather tense cover from a fairly late issue of NEW WESTERN. Walt Coburn was still a valued contributor to the Popular Publications pulps, although according to some accounts, by this time his drinking problems forced the editors to heavily rewrite his stories to get them to make sense. Other authors in this issue include Thomas Thompson, Max Kesler, Rod Patterson, Marvin De Vries, and Thomas Calvert, who was really Thomas Calvert McClary.
