LONE RANGER "and the Hooded Horsemen" Conclusion

Cover art by Morris Gollub
Finding a young woman held captive by masked cowboys, the Lone Ranger and Tonto fake being shot to find the location of the woman's sister, also held captive.
Overcoming and replacing two of the hooded owlhoots, the duo are led the headquarters, but are then unmasked.
Though the Ranger and Tonto have the leader, the criminals hold the two women, and will kill them if the two lawmen don't surrender...
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.

Related note: the Complete Lone Ranger Collector's Edition DVD set I mentioned HERE has been discontinued at Costco.
If you didn't get it for $79.99, the cheapest you'll find it for on-line is $119.99 HERE.
