Dynamite Entertainment: The Lone Ranger #6 coverThe Lone Ranger #6
Written by Ande Parks
Art by Esteve Polls
Colors by Marcelo Pinto
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 6, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

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.

Release Date: May 2, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #5 is what SEEMS to be the climax of the first story arc in this title, but in fact, there is one more chapter to go. I’m not happy that I have to wait a month, because quite frankly, I’m not sure how ANYONE would top this issue.

It’s no secret by now that I love this book and I love Ande Parks‘ writing. Not just here, his Green Hornet title is seriously underrated. But, back to this comic.

Release Date: April 4, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #4 is another can’t-miss issue. With so many stories going on at once, you never get lost or confused for a minute while reading this excellent comic. For the fourth month in a row, it’s another home run for this book!

Writer Ande Parks crafts a fantastic story this issue with lots going on. There’s about four different tales going on at once, including a fantastic origin of a main character!!! Be SURE to pick this one up, because I have a feeling it’s going to be very important down the road. This issue really transcended my love of the PROPERTY of The Lone Ranger, and solidified my love for this as a COMIC BOOK. At this point, Parks has you invested in these characters, that you don’t even think of them as TV, movie, or radio characters. You just read it because it’s a great comic.

Written by Ande Parks

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 7, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #3 could be the last issue of the series and I really wouldn’t care. OK, I’d care A LOT. But in a different way. The creative team has packed everything that I’ve wanted this comic to be into just three issues. I’m happy as a clam all ready. What more do I need? I’m sure I’ll find out in about a month.

Someone get writer Ande Parks to Chicago so I can buy him a drink. I know, I know, a lot of you think I’m just paying lip service to the guy, but if you actually took the time to read the book, you’d understand. As I mentioned before, in just three issues he’s delivered on everything that I’d wanted out of the Lone Ranger comic. Heck, he even threw in my favorite move from western movie — the punch a guy with one hand and and catch his gun with the other movie. Classic.

Written by Brandon Thomas
Illustrated by Ariel Padilla
Colors by Marcelo Pinto
Letters by Marshall Dillion
Covers by Sean Chen, Alex Ross
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Here’s what Dynamite Entertainment would have you believe Voltron #3 is about: “The Man From Arus has come to Earth with an urgent message—Drule is coming and our planet lacks any credible defense. To turn the tide, an embattled scientist must accept the impossible and place the fate of humanity in the hands of something that doesn’t exist. And little does he know that his fateful actions have brought the Voltron Force to their current situation almost a hundred years later…staring down a battalion of shock troops and Robeasts that have come to make sure Voltron doesn’t get rescued and the day doesn’t get saved. Generation Voltron continues…”

Release Date: February 1, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

In today’s comic book market, western comics are a hard sell. If you ask me, if more western comics were like The Lone Ranger #2, they wouldn’t be. In a time when every hero is almost a villain, and every villain is just a misunderstood victim, this book gives us a breath of fresh air — good guys vs. bad guys.

Writer Ande Parks really delivers in this issue. While this is the second chapter in the first arc of the series, it is, just like the first issue, basically a one and done, which is great. I can’t remember the last time I read a comic book that wasn’t to be continued in the next issue or worse, continued in 8 other comics. There’s something very satisfying about sitting down with a comic that has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

Release Date: December 7th, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

Every 5 to 7 years World Events Productions reboots Voltron for a new generation. And every 5 to 7 years I get really excited and then I get extremely let down. Well, not this time! Voltron #1 is the fresh take on the property that fans have been waiting for!

Writer Brandon Thomas writes a story that both stays true to the original concept, spirit, and execution of the classic Voltron story, yet throws in enough twists and turns to keep it fresh and very accessible to new readers.

Lone Ranger #23Lone Ranger #23
Written by Brett Matthews
Art by Sergio Cariello
Cover Art By John Cassaday
Colors: Marcelo Pinto
Lettered by Simon Bowland
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 18, 2010

Dynamite’s The Lone Ranger #23 is Part 7 of a storyline entitled “Resolve.” The first thing that catches your eye is the awesome John Cassaday artwork on the front cover. From page one, the story picks up as we see the Lone Ranger’s foe Butch Cavendish torturing a sheriff that he has kidnapped. The sheriff’s ordeal is shown throughout much of the book as the story alternates between those scenes and Lone Ranger and Tonto preparing themselves for a final showdown.

We also see a young Lone Ranger in this book, still a bit unsure of himself. Refreshingly, Tonto is portrayed as very capable and not constantly needing to be rescued by his “Kemo Sabe.” This is clearly not your father’s Lone Ranger and Tonto. Also, we see that the Lone Ranger has the potential for a romantic interest with a character named Linda. Brett Matthews has truly scripted a very unique interpretation of the Lone Ranger mythos.
