Our final entry for Lone Ranger Month is a two-parter...
...reprinting a story from the newspaper strip!
Note: the first page is from the inside front cover of the comic, so it's a two-color (red and black) page.
The rest of the story is traditional "four color".
How will the Lone Ranger and Tonto escape?
How will they rescue the two women?
I always thought that "no kill" gimmick was going to backfire at one point or another...
This tale from Dell's Four Color Comics #167 (1947) was written by Lone Ranger co-creator Fran Striker and illustrated by Charles Flanders.
It was originally-published in 1941 as part of the Lone Ranger syndicated newspaper strip.
Though probably adapted from a radio script, it's been retitled, so I haven't yet figureed out which 1941 (or earlier) episode it's from.
