Ripley, Rainbow. Rainbow Ripley was created by Bliss Lomax and appeared in Saddle Hawks (1944), Lost Buckaroo (1949), and Law Busters (1950).

Rainbow Ripley and his partner Grumpy Gibbs are “well-known range detectives and man hunters.” They are freelancers, and “when they were between cases, they...returned to Wyoming and the hospitality of Judge Benton Carver’s Green River Ranch.” Gibbs is a “gnarled little man,” cranky but quick with his guns and possessed of an “iron will and unflagging courage.” Ripley is tall, lean, bronzed, and manly.
