I believe DOOM CANYON is a much earlier issue around 1948 as mentioned in the National Library Trove section (probably #4), as it had 64 pages not 48 like the later ones in the series.

Comment on Invincible Westerns (Invincible, 1949? series)
I would place THE GIRL OF GHOST MOUNTAIN a little earlier and just in front of RAWLIN'S RIDERS as it had 64 pages and as I mentioned earlier, there is a noticeable feature of a girl in many of the the early seven Invincible westerns.

Due to the similar front covers from the first three Invincible Westerns along with a girl being on each of these front covers, I would suggest that DOOM CANYON should be #4 and SADDLE KILLER and GIRL FROM GHOST MOUNTAIN be around #5 and #6 as they also had...

Comment on Invincible Westerns (Invincible, 1949? series)
I think RAWLIN'S RIDERS should move to #7 as several other Invincible Westerns like DOOM CANYON, SADDLE KILLER and GIRL FROM GHOST MOUNTAIN probably came earlier as they had 64 PAGES NOT 48.

I think #4 is DOOM CANYON as it follows the early front cover themes with 6d at the bottom left plus it also continues the theme of having a girl on the front cover. In addition it continues the 64 page story text. SADDLE KILLER introduces an entirely different looking...

I haven't monitored pulps, but I expect that they experienced the same problems as comics. Post war, costs went up, especially the price of paper, and comics reduced page counts before putting up prices. This is the period -- page counts in comics reduced (generally with variations and exceptions) from...
