Rangers Comics #22*

Rangers Comics made its debut in 1941 under the title “Rangers of Freedom Comics,” showcasing a superhero team donning distinctive costumes. After seven installments, the series underwent a name change to “Rangers Comics” and retained its iconic cover flag banner for an additional 62 issues, concluding with issue #69.

As the latest addition to the “Big Six of the Comics” lineup by publisher Fiction House, Rangers Comics stood out for its captivating pin-up style good girl art. The esteemed “Big Six” roster also included Jumbo, Jungle Comics, Wings Comics, Planet Comics, and Fight Comics.

Rangers Comics, although never reaching a monthly publication schedule, holds the distinction of being the inaugural cancellation among the “Big Six.” Initially centered around war narratives until 1945, the series later diversified its focus to anthologies and westerns. A standout character within its pages was Firehair, the “Queen of the Sagebrush Frontier,” introduced in issue #21 (1945) and prominently featured on subsequent covers (#40-65).

Collectors may find issues #34* and #36* particularly intriguing, with the latter showcasing the inside story “Glory Forbes” by the renowned good girl artist Matt Baker.
