Here are some factoids I’ve collected from various old comic books that tell the story of the legendary Texas Rangers. Texas Rangers had their own movies of course (well over a couple hundred movies in fact), several television series, a radio series, several comic books and a dedicated pulp magazine creatively called “Texas Rangers”. They feature prominently in western fiction–The Lone Ranger was a Texas Ranger before he became a masked avenger and the heroes of Lonesome Dove trilogy were Texas Rangers.
Also provided below are a couple of comic books (one based on the 1951 movie starring George Montgomery) and issue number 005 of the comic book called Texas Rangers in Action. The Texas Rangers is a huge subject and there is plenty of more material on them for later. Introducing this organization into a role playing game would be a great way to build up a formidable team of lawmen to have epic shootouts with bandit gangs and border crossing rustlers. A team of 3-4 rangers (player characters) seeking a band of owl hoots would be the start of a great adventure.
