THE LONE RANGER Comic Cover Art

One of the rarest Lone Ranger comics wasn't sold on newstands...
Art by Murphy Anderson
...but in connection with the reissue of the 1960s model kits seen above!
Thse kits originally came out at the time of the first Lone Ranger cartoon series, which is why "Taka the Eagle", (who only appeared in the cartoon series) is shown with Tonto!

In the mid-1970s, Aurora re-released many of their comic-themed kits with new cover art plus newly-created comic book inserts under the name Comic Scenes.
Besides the Ranger and Tonto (both of whom featured art by Gil Kane), all the exisiting DC and Marvel kits were re-released with new art by stalwarts like John Romita Sr, Dick Giordano, and Herb Trimpe.
The cover to the Lone Ranger comic is below...
And here's the original art for this kool Gil Kane cover...
