I had seen some Dell comics based on the TV show, with photo covers of Gail Davis, but I had never seen any of the Atlas comics before. Looks like it was more about "good girl art" than marksmanship.

True. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Presumably, after the Comics Code was established, the cheesecake was toned down, her skirts got longer, and it became more of a straight (and kid-friendly) Western. Atlas' Code-approved monster/science fiction comics were pretty tame in the late 1950's.

It obviously wasn't much of an action western.
