Fran Striker created the Lone Ranger character which first appeared in a 1933 radio show on WXYZ Detroit and expanded to additional stations such as NBC. The fictional character, who rode a white horse called Silver, is named the Lone Ranger because he is the only survivor of a group of six Texas Rangers who were ambushed by outlaws. Although originally created for children, adults made up at least half of the audience. The Los Angeles Sunday Herald and Examiner began running a weekly feature of the Lone Ranger in their comic section of the paper September 11, 1938. The strip ran until 1971 and was illustrated by Charles Flanders and written by Ed Kressy.
