The Lone Ranger is a fictional masked former Texas Ranger who fights injustice in the American Old West with his Native American friend, Tonto. The character has become an enduring icon of American culture.
Departing on his white stallion, Silver, the Lone Ranger would shout, "Hi-Yo, Silver! Away!". As they galloped off, someone would ask, "Who was that masked man, anyway?" Tonto usually referred to the Lone Ranger as "Ke-mo sah-bee", supposedly meaning either "trusty scout" or "trusted friend," These catchphrases, his trademark silver bullets, and the theme music from the William Tell Overture have become tropes of popular culture.
Issue # 1 of "The Lone Ranger's Famous Horse Hi-Yo Silver" comes from Four Color # 369 (January 1952) and issue 2 comes from Four Color # 392 (April 1952). Due to popular sales, Dell gave the series its own title which ran for 36 issues from May 1952 to December 1960.
