Captain Marvel Jr #75 (The Outlaw of Crooked Creek) July 1949

This yarn presents Freddy Freeman as a cowboy and CMJ as a crack shot with a western revolver. This story obviously taps into the strong western comics trend during the late 1940s. Seven of the 13 comic titles Fawcett was then publishing were western themed. Mr. Crumpet, the newspaper publisher, appears in several other CMJ stories  (CMJ #59, CMJ #66, CMJ #73 , MF #27).
