In 1981, with high expectations for the feature film "The Legend of the Lone Ranger," a brand new daily newspaper comic strip was launched. It was written by Carey Bates with art by Russ Heath. The art was based on the look of the movie characters. The strip had limited syndication through the New York Times Syndicate. It ended in 1984.
