A sad story, but well written for the final ending to the legend of Zorro.
The mini-series examines a subject that is rarely focused on in comics which is the death of a hero. Superman explored that theme in 1992 and earlier this year with The Last Days of Superman in the comic book in the New 52 with the death of the New 52 Superman.

Superman eventually returns from the dead, Zorro has no superpowers except for his courage and crusade to help those in need. The Lone Ranger and La Justica, the men who had trained Zorro come together to avenge his death by a group of ren

I disliked this. I'm a fan of legendary heroes and this was a title that promised to mix two of my favorites. The concept was good, the tie in was reasonable. Zorro is retired, living out his years as a rancher with a young, beautiful wife. Indians in the area get in trouble and Zorro rides again. I was hoping for something along the lines of Marvel's "Blaze of Glory", but no, Zorro is shot in the back and left to rot, until his body is brought home by the Lone Ranger. Then "La Justicia", a Span ...more

I've been a Lone Ranger fan for over 35 years. My dad hooked me onto the old radio shows in the mid 70's. And I've enjoyed Zorro, as well.
When this 1st came out, I did not want to read it. Seeing a hero die, I just was not up for it. Now, the "Trade Paperback" is out, with the 5 issue series, and I decided to try it.
The tie-in is well done. But too many flashbacks muddle the story and take away from the current story. (For me, at least.)
There is a lot of reading this time around-My one compla

This tale was not quite strong enough to receive a higher rating, but it is an above average crossover and in its own right Zorro tale. The title in many ways says it all, Don Diego is dead, and the Lone Ranger and Tonto on on hand to avenge him.

The vengeance portion of the story is very standard. What writer Ande Parks does well is build a bridge between the late Don Diego and John Reid. In addition, Parks uses, and well I think, certain ideas from Isabel Allende's excellent Zorro novel. Add to

Not much to say about this. It was enjoyable in the same hackneyed way that cheesy old comics from the '50s and '60s are enjoyable, only now you get a big helping of political correctness on the side. The real disappointment, however, is the pathetic manner in which Zorro meets his end. Even James T. Kirk's anticlimactic death in STAR TREK GENERATIONS was done with greater flair. THE DEATH OF ZORRO has very little plot; most of what you get is backstory and the re-introduction of several famous ...more

Difícil de recomendar para quien no se vincule a estos personajes, ofrece en cambio un magnífico tributo que el aficionado de siempre sabrá valorar. Dos generaciones unidas por un juramento que honrarán hasta las últimas consecuencias en un mundo donde todo parece cambiar, excepto la palabra comprometida.

v. busy, there is a secret society of Zorros introduced that take up too many pages, Zorro's death is quick and ignoble. disappointing, i've enjoyed the Lone Ranger titles.

Could easily have been three chapters/issues instead of five. Needed more action and fewer flashbacks.
