THE LONE RANGER "He Finds Dan Reid" Part 1

You may know that Dan Reid is both The Lone Ranger's nephew...
...and The Green Hornet's father.
But do you know he appeared in both characters' radio shows and comic books, making Dan one of pop culture's first "crossover" characters?
Will The Lone Ranger's uncanny aim enable him to save the officer without killing the Apache?
Will he find any clues as to where his nephew is...or even if Dan is alive?
You'll find the startling conclusion, along with background info and other goodies, Tuesday, at our "brother" blog...
Adapted from a radio show episode of the same name, this story from Dell's Lone Ranger Golden West #3 (1955) was pencilled by Tom Gill, but the inking looks a lot like John Severin, not Gill himself.
This entry is part of our Retroblogs™ Masks Marathon, celebrating the new Dynamite comic series Masks which combines, for the first time, the major masked mystery men of pulps and comics including The Green Hornet, The Shadow, The Spider, Zorro, The Black Terror, The Green Lama, and Miss Fury (ok, a masked mystery woman), among others.
Though The Lone Ranger hasn't been listed as participating, The Green Hornet (and by extenssion, Dan Reid), are in the story.
(Besides, Zorro is making an appearance, so there's always a possibility...)
We'll be presenting more never-reprinted stories featuring these characters throughout the month of December.

  1. If the hostiles were Apaches Tonto would have a long ride to Fort Laramie. Maybe they were Kiowa Apaches who lived with the Kiowas a lot closer but still rather far from Fort Laramie. Of course this is the wild west and not history.
