Wonderful artwork, fun characters brimming with nostalgia, and very sloppy writing. How you rate this book will depend on which of those elements is the most important to you. For me, it's always the writing, thus the two stars. Now, you might assume that the writing falls short because it's The Lone Ranger and therefore geared toward kids, but the sheer amount of blood and wanton violence throughout would indicate otherwise.

I have heard of Lone Ranger before and know about the T.V. show from the 50s, the comic books and even the racist stereotypes of the character Tonto, his Native American companion. Never have I experience any of these things firsthand before now. What the hell took me so long??? Seeing as this was a review copy, only the first hundred pages or so was collected in it, instead of the 600 and some in the full volume that will be released in July. But the first hundred pages held more than enough ...more

This is the best rendition of the Lone Ranger in graphic form that I've read and Dynamite has much to be proud of here. The story is well-written, expertly plotted and left you with a desire to read more. While the relationship between the Lone Ranger and Tonto was far frontier than we may be accustomed to, they were just getting to know each other, and I have little doubt it will grow warmer with time. Enough of the Ranger's origin was told to both hook you in and make you instantly sympathetic ...more

I picked this up to reacquaint myself with the Lone Ranger in preparation for the new movie, but I had no idea I would consume this hefty volume so rapidly or enjoy it as much as I ultimately did.

This book comprises the first 25 issues of the Dynamite comic series, plus a Free Comic Book Day story. The story is one continuous arc as John Reid evolves into the hero known as the Lone Ranger in order to exact vengeance on Butch Cavendish, the man responsible for the murder of Reid's brother.

I am most definitely not the target audience for the Lone Ranger. I'm 50 years younger than the radio/TV fans, and a female comics reader who's never been much for Westerns, and frankly I have always thought the Lone Ranger was a bland, boring hero. I have not seen the old TV show, but I'd picked up that popular image of the Lone Ranger as a goody-two-shoes through pop culture osmosis. Well, this comic proved me wrong. I ate it up and can't wait for more. This Ranger is a human being, not an ...more

Recuerdo que leí hasta cierto punto esta serie, recomendada por la página llamada Comic Book Orange y vaya que recomendación tan certera fue aquella.
Si hay un personaje de los mitos del western que si bien estaba arrumado en un rincón y con una película que dejo mucho pero mucho que desear (por mucho que Johnny Deep estuviese metido, fue un trago agridulce) el comic de Dynamite le dio el verdadero impulso que se merecía, una versión un poco más moderna y fuertemente inspirada por la spaghetti w

Featuring all 25 issue's of the comic by Dynamite, this update by Brett Matthews is grittier than earlier versions. Excellent art by Sergio Cariello and Paul Pope add to the pleasures in reading. The publication couldn't be timelier with a new Lone Ranger movie about to open.

My review copy only included the first 100 pages, but they retell the origin of how the ranger lost his family, made a friend, and found a horse. Butch Cavendish is featured as the main villain, and we see his machinations i

I enjoyed this book. The collection is the first 25 comics by Dynamite. The story line remains true to Fran Strikers origins, but adds a completely new depth to the characters and makes them much grittier than I've seen before. There are the nods to parts of the mythology; the tie to the Green Hornet in particular. There are a lot of parallels to The Batman as well; the cave and the disguise to strike fear into men.
Good artwork, great story. I liked it.

Great collection of the complete first series by Dynamite. The book is very cinematic, it often looks like these could be storyboards for a movie. Beautiful artwork and solid story. No unusual sense of humor, very faithful to the original Lone Ranger. Well done...
