Free Comics Monday: Cowgirls and Indians

Today I present 2 more comics from Fiction House in the 1950's.

This first one really shows you how mass marketed comics have changed since the 50's in that I don't think you could have a comic simply called Indians anymore. No, nowadays, you'd have to slap an Aliens Vs before Indians. Even then, you'd probably have to pull some sort of shady kickback deal to get a comic store to order a bunch of them. ;)

But enough of that..check out this awesome cover.

This next comic, well, I think it's plain to see that Fiction House was trying to reach out to that often ostracized female cowpuncher audience. I mean how many times have you seen a comic targeted at girls who like romance comics AND cowboy comics? (Now that I think about it - Dan Slott's She-Hulk run had a little bit of that in it didn't it?)
