Regular series that was both bi-monthly and monthly during its 85 issue run.

The introduction of Western Comics stood as proof of DC's commitment to the Western genre. DC's longest-running Western title, Western Comics was an anthology series, featuring such characters as the wandering cowboy the Wyoming Kid, the Native American lawman Pow Wow Smith, the Cowboy Marshall, Jim Sawyer, showman Rodeo Rick, and Matt Savage, Trail Boss. The masked Vigilante Greg Saunders appeared in the first four issues of the title, but was soon replaced by itinerant fix-it man Nighthawk.
