Lone Ranger Comic

From 1939 to 1962 Dell Publishing Co. ran a monthly—often more frequent—comic book series of the Lone Ranger's adventures. Fran Striker was the Lone Ranger's creator and broadcast script writer. The comic books originally consisted of reprints from the newspaper strips (as had all previous comic book appearances of the character, in various titles from David McKay Publications and from Dell); however, original content began with #7.
