"Giant Comic", Featuring The Phantom Ranger (illustrator unknown), c1956

Yes, another "masked ranger" story - this one produced in Britain. The drawings are quite simple and naive in character but still charming. The stories are hilarious (the "headless horseman" below says it all!) but you have to keep in mind that they were designed for very young readers! The cover must have been painted by another artist (I presume) and is much more sophisticated and eye-catching. You can just about read the name of the artist on the bottom right-hand corner (I think it's W something Howarth...), otherwise there are no credits for the creators of this book.
