Was The Lone Ranger Based On A Black Lawman?

April 23, 2013
We have an intriguing article in the next issue that makes the case that the Lone Ranger was probably based on Bass Reeves, a black peace officer. I'd love to tease Cowboys & Indians and their cover (which will be on the newsstand at the same time as ours) and at the same time piggyback on the juggernaut of Disney advertising and promotion that is going to be flowing very soon. With that said, whipped out this cover sketch this morning
