Women in the Old West had to be deadlier than men... the cover story of Fox's Women Outlaws #1 (1948) about a Real-Life Westerner graphically-proves!
Story begins on comic's inside cover which used only two different color inks instead of the usual four.
Kate Maxwell's story has been adapted into several movies and tv series episodes, including RedHead from Wyoming (with Maureen O'Hara as Kate), and Overland Trail "High Bridge" (with Whitney Blake as Kate).

Trivia: This tale from Women Outlaws is one of the few Western comic stories to be excerpted in the notorious Seduction of the Innocent by Fredric Wertham!
The others were Western Adventures and Frontier Romances!
The third panel from page 8 is presented (out of context) in the 16-page illustrated insert...
