Lone Ranger, The by Fran Striker, Ed Kressey, Charles Flanders  (0870-) 1st Appearance September 11, 1938 - The Lone Ranger comic strip was spawned from an era where western action was the king of entertainment genres.   Written by Fran Striker,  the comic strip formula was similar to that of the radio and the later television versions.    The masked rider and his sidekick Tonto would go through shoot-outs, daring escapes and lots of western action while ruining the schemes of the bad guys.   In would take a couple of months for the Lone Ranger to finally bring in the outlaws, but he would always win in the end.    The most successful artwork on the strip was done by Charles Flanders who also worked on Secret Agent X-9 and King of the Royal Mounted.   His style was quite detailed but very clean which fit the persona of the Lone Ranger perfectly.   The strip had a nice long run into the late 1950s, showing the resiliency of the character.  The market for The Lone Ranger is moderately strong.   The addition of nostalgia collectors to strip collectors make for a wider demand than most strips.  Dailies are a bit on the uncommon side and sell a little quicker than sunday pages.  Those sundays were only offered as halves, Tabs or smaller.
