    First Kingdom?

    Judge Dredd?

    Omaha, The Cat Dancer(a erotic soap opera featuring talking animals)?

    Harvey Pekar's entire body of work(It was the ongoing autobio of a completely average file clerk in...Cleveland I thing?)?

    Not sure what the OP considers "truly unique".

    I don't think any of these are in the western genre.

    Arguably there were fewer in sound films. Barbara Stanwyck essayed "Annie Oakley" in the 1930s, and in the early 1940s Linda Stirling played a masked crusader in "Zorro's Black Whip." though she was a female fighter masquerading as a guy.

    I did a small summation of the status of western gals in comics here.
    Nice!

    Also the pulps had their own in Señorita Scorpion
    (one of the first female lead pulps)

    Oh for some reason I read his question completely wrong.

    In that case Blueberry if it hasn't been mentioned already.

    Howe much crossover was there with the Supernatural and the Western genres before the popularity of Weird Western ?
    Not saying it began with Weird Western, I'm sure there was plenty of individual stand alone stories before, but did the Supernatural-Western crossover exist as a genre already? Was there a popular novel series, or pulp series, ore film series that came before? I'm asking where it was first made popular that you could label it as such?
