Characters:
Lone Ranger; Tonto; Rawhide Kid

Indexer Notes

It's likely this story was too obscure to be the inspiration behind it, and he was only seen in one of four panels, but Marvel's own Rawhide Kid character did come out in 2003, in a mini-series which featured art and innuendo very similar to that contained within this one page story.

Indexer Notes

This story was dedicated to Neal Pozner, who passed away due to AIDS. It is a continuation of Part 1, from issue #24, and was billed as to be continued, but since this was the last issue of Gay Comics, the next installment wasn't seen in this title or any other.
