Quality's Crack Comics became Crack Comics Western with #63. The new lead character was a cheerful wandering troubleshooter called Arizona Ames. Arizona had a boy sidekick called Spurs. He liked women, but didn't mean to settle down. In #66 his surname was changed to Raines.

The feature was drawn by Paul Gustavson. It's the most fun feature I've run into from the Western boom. Arizona appeared through the whole of the title's run, from #63-#84 (1949-1953). From #69-#73 he appeared in two stories each issue. He also appeared in some of the text stories.

The title ran five photographic covers during its run. Arizona was featured on the others, except for #71's (the Whip) and #83's (Bob Allen, frontier marshal). The cover artists were Gustavson and Reed Crandall.
