Cow Puncher 6, 1949

Like the Jungle Adventure genre, cowboy comics were popular in the 1950's but fell out of favor in the 1960's and are virtually unknown today. This issue is a example of a woman serving no useful function except as decoration - with sex being the selling point. As was often the case, the cover girl is tied up. This comic was published by Avon. Yes, Avon. They published a line of comic books in the 1950's. All genres were represented, even Jungle Adventure and Cowboy, but title runs were short. Cow Puncher lasted only 7 issues.
