"Western Gunfighters" is the name of two American Western omnibus comic book series published by Marvel Comics.

Publication history

Atlas Comics

The first series, in the 1950s, was published by Atlas Comics, the precursor to Marvel. The series replaced the "Apache Kid" comic, beginning its numbering at #20, where "Apache Kid" had left off. Stan Lee wrote many of the stories, with contributions from Jerry Siegel and Sol Brodsky. Artists included Don Heck, Syd Shores, Alex Toth, and Reed Crandall.

Marvel Comics

The second was a 1970s series notable for introducing the second and third versions of the Phantom Rider (also known as the Western Ghost Rider) in issue #7 (Jan. 1972). The first issue of this series introduced the character Gunhawk and the short-lived feature "Renegades" — "The Fugitive" times four, in the Old West. The second series also featured reprints from other Marvel westerns of the 1950s. Artwork for the new stories was provided primarily by Dick Ayers
