The Lone Ranger #6 is the epic conclusion to the series’ first story arc, and man, is it a great one. We’ve been following the Ranger as he and Tonto have been fighting to save the town of Utopia from the evil Dorsey gang. When we last left them, both The Lone Ranger AND Tonto were in pretty rough shape. Here’s hoping they made it out OK!

Month in and month out I praise the writing skills of Mr. Ande Parks, and this is going to be no different. You might ask yourself WHY I do that. The answer is simple: Ande Parks is a damn fine writer. Plain and simple. If you’re not reading this title and his work over on Green Hornet, you’re missing out on some quality entertainment.

But, back to this book. The Lone Ranger #6 is packed full of both original ideas and good old Western cliches. You get some great resolves to lingering questions that have been coming since issue 1. You get some great action-gunplay, fighting, etc. And you also get some fantastic character moments, some of them from the supporting cast, but most from the Ranger. It’s amazing that Parks can move a character forward with two simple words here and there. This is consistently one of the best written books around. Bar none.

Esteve Polls shines in this issue. His attention to detail is amazing. I wonder how much time he spends on Google looking up references for hardware for that time period. I would also imagine he has built up quite the reference library as well. In this issue, I’m particularly impressed by his page layouts. He takes some risks in this issue and they totally pay off. Here’s hoping that he stays with the title after this arc. If not, you can be sure I’ll follow him onto his next project.

Hey, for once in your life listen to me and pick this up!!! It’s a great book, and don’t give me the “I’m not a Western guy” excuse, because you’ll enjoy it, Western fan or not. It’s got a really solid story and fantastic art. This is a classic example of why we make our trek to the comic book store each week.
