Wild West Weekly

Wild West Weekly, "A magazine containing stories, sketches etc. of western life", was published by Frank Tousey from 1902-1928.

Like other dime novels, the issues were printed on inexpensive acidic paper and featured dramatic, colorful front cover illustrations. This very popular title depicts life and adventure on the American frontier. The stories usually feature a hero, a heroine, stereotyped representations of Native Americans, and fictionalized versions of well-known western figures like Buffalo Bill, Kit Carson, and Billy the Kid. Dime novels were the popular precursor to the modern paperback and comic book. Our digitized collection of Wild West Weekly includes the first issue, published on October 24, 1902, and comprises a total of 53 issues.
