Editorial Reviews

Review

FOR FANS OF... The nearly defunct genre of Western comics and better, for those who aren't fans of Western comics. DOES IT DELIVER? Epic and emotional, spare yet rich, Lone Ranger is worth its weight in (hi-yo) silver. And man, dem John Cassaday covers sure are purdy. A- Jeff Jensen --Entertainment Weekly

At a cultural moment where it's hard to recognize the actions of many of our favorite comic book heroes, the bracing sense of familiarity herein, merged with truly modern art and cinematic storytelling, makes for a terrific ride. --Newsarama.com

Daring to dig deeply enough into the Lone Ranger's character to make him interesting, but delicately enough to keep the classic hero true to his TV and radio heritage, no book on the shelves feels classically Western quite like Lone Ranger. ----Brian Warmoth --Wizard

I grew up watching the TV show and reading old comics and books on The Lone Ranger and Tonto if you are a fan you have to indulge yourself into this series!

At first glance, Cariello's art looks a lot like Joe Kubert's pencils.

Format: Paperback
When I was a child back in the early 1960s, I wanted to grow up to be a hero. I tied a towel around my neck and was sometimes Superman or Batman. I ululated in the back yard like Tarzan and shamed the cats in the neighborhood. I ran as fast as Jonny Quest in my PF Flyers.

But the hero I loved most of all at that time was the Lone Ranger. His adventures came on every afternoon, and I'd get home from school in time to watch him shoot the guns out of the bad men's hands, give lectures on the evils of, well...evil, and leave that cool silver bullet behind so people could ask, "Who was that masked man?"

The Lone Ranger was the brainchild of George W. Trendle, a radio producer, but he was given life by Fran Striker in radio script and novel form, and brought to iconic life on television by Clayton Moore.

But in the beginning, he was a young Texas Ranger named John Reid who was with his father and brother the day they were gunned down by Butch Cavendish's men. Reid clawed his way out of the grave, donned his signature mask, and started cleaning up the West.

The last couple of years, Dynamite Entertainment Comics brought the Lone Ranger back to comics, which had to have been one of the coolest and riskiest things ever done. I mean, in an age of FaceBook and MySpace, who'd buy a cowboy hero?

More people should, because the graphic story rendered by Brent Matthews (a Hollywood scriptwriter) and Sergio Cariello (an award-winning graphic artist) is one of the best stories that came out in novel form this summer. The story is familiar to everyone, but Matthews's way of telling it in cinematic presentation, and Cariello's beautiful drawings, give the tale a life that hasn't been seen before.

I guess I'll start with a silly:

- Where does the Lone Ranger take his garbage?
- To the dump, to the dump, to the dump, dump, dump...

Sometimes you gotta sample the new stuff. Sometimes you gotta get off Marvel and DC's jocks long enough to give the independents a chance. And Dynamite Entertainment, the little engine that could, is doing big things in the comic book medium. Dynamite Entertainment's main thing seems to be the taking of established characters and then continuing or reinterpreting their adventures. Under its bailiwick, we see new life breathed into iconic figures like Sherlock Holmes, Zorro, Buck Rogers, Red Sonja, Sergio Leone's the Man with No Name, and even to Robert E. Howard's great villain Thulsa Doom. On the superhero front, we get PROJECT SUPERPOWERS and the controversial THE BOYS. All this, as a way of long-windedly getting on topic, which is the Lone Ranger.

"Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear..." Yeah, you'd have to be really oblivious to 75+ years' worth of pop culture to not have heard of the Lone Ranger. There's a certain wholesome image cultivated by this most famous of masked lawmen. The Lone Ranger never shoots to kill, has those silver bullets, fights the good fight with his faithful friend Tonto, and rides his magnificent steed Silver. The impression given is that the Lone Ranger subsists on milk and cookies, is in bed by nine, and is probably saving himself for marriage. Then Dynamite Entertainment comes along and dirties up the image. And, I think, in a good way. He becomes more relatable, less vanilla.

That's not to say that the approach isn't reverent. This interpretation smacks of deep respect and love of the legend, but there's a gritty updating, as well.

The art within these first 6 issues makes the purchase worth it. The dialogue is quite sparse, but this makes the Lone Ranger a superb example of the potential within this visual medium, "Show don't tell". This TPB also has some fascinating sketches in the back with notes from the artist and you can see the characters come to life. There are times when the sparsity of dialogue leave me a bit confused as to what is going on, but the story always brings the reader back, and sometimes just getting lost in the visuals is just as good as reading any comic. This comic is good old fashioned gun slingin', vengeance seekin', Wild Western fun. Highly reccommended, well worth the price tag too.

As a longtime fan of the Lone Ranger (Clayton Moore ruled!), I like just about anything with the Ranger in it. The Filmation cartoon, the less than stellar old comic books (Gold Key, maybe?), heck, even the Clinton Spilsbury (sp?) movie from the 80s. But this is probably the best Lone Ranger I've seen, in any medium. The updates of the characters, made more gritty and "real" feeling, all work. And there's nods to other versions of the characters, even to Tonto's famous "How!" phrase. I'm already looking forward to the next graphic novel installment of this series.

Cue the William Tell Overture....

Then again, if you expect it to be the old school western on your television...then you might not like it!

They made it for today! It is great! I couldn't put it down, such a great read. The art is gorgeous, maybe because it's from a well know and award winning artist named Cassaday. He brought a lot of moods to this story, and so did the writing. The only downfall.....well....they had a pause in between issues around 17 or 18...but they are back! It's great!!! :)
