Saturday Morning Western Pulp: New Western, January 1946

"We gotta get this shipment through tuh the coyote, Tex!"
Okay, this is one of my favorite Western pulp covers so far. Frantic powder-burning action, injury to a hat, reins in the teeth, and great detail (that's a keg of Gut Buster Whiskey XXX under the canvas). Sam Cherry, working for Popular Publications instead of the Thrilling Group for a chance, really outdid himself on this one. Inside are stories by Harry F. Olmsted, Giff Cheshire, Joseph Chadwick, Eli Colter, and Miles Overholt. Pretty good lineup to go with that great cover.
