The Lone Ranger is a powerful tale of the West and begins the origins of the Lone Ranger in a way never before presented. A young man searches for revenge, only to find justice… and that he’s something greater than he ever thought he could be. Evoking shades of such powerful Westerns as Unforgiven, the tone of such powerful modern interpretations of the West as Deadwood, and written in the most reverential way, this is the must-read comic of 2006.
The Lone Ranger #1 sold out on its first day in comic shops. A second printing variant edition is available in stores and for re-order. THE LONE RANGER #1 – LIMITED EDITION SECOND PRINT VARIANT (JUL063037)
In The Lone Ranger #2 (AUG063193), John Reid has been left for dead and is found by an uneasy ally – Tonto! Determined to seek his revenge, Reid forms a plan as Tonto aids in his recovery, but will Julius Bartholomew, aka Black Bart, uncover the truth about Reid?
