Steve Weissman covers The Lone Ranger's Famous Horse Hi-Yo Silver 25

Original cover (I'm guessing) is by Sam Savitt; Dell 1958. Steve Weissman's website is here.


  1. Wait...I always thought it was Hi-Ho Silver?!?

    Really nice and entertaining, Steve. It looks like the Mountain Lion has fallen into a whole other sketchbook.

    p.s.- I can still read your PIN number under that blacked out patch.

  2. A full course meal with a Basquiat meets comic feel. Very engaging.

  3. I love the pages! I swiped your jpeg, Mr. Weissman.

  4. Anybody know for sure who did the original. Was my guess right?

    On Steve's recommendation, I picked up an issue of Silver at Comic Con. It's very strange. The Lone Ranger is always telling stories of Silver before they were a team. You have to assume that Silver told the Lone Ranger about his life over a fire with the special language they share.

  5. My theory is Lone Ranger just had a faithfull horse and he liked to make up stories about him to entertain people and prove how great of a horse he had.

  6. Wow, I love the original's art. As usual, Steven, your taste is impeccable.

    I've still yet to do one of these! Sooner or later, I hope to do one.
