View Full Version : Lone Ranger # 13 / REVIEW

Never seems DE gets it ALL right with this title....this story moves along with more dialogue than usual..a good thing but I need to see more character development, Tonto stays aloof AS USUAL and I can't real get a feel for the Ranger, it's like he's JUST there.
AND THEN... the cover art is probably the worst Cassaday I've seen and we get an Authentix variant cover that looks like the cover art was just forgotten.
But it's on time, so it gets 3 out of 5 from me.

I finally got a chance to read it. A quick read as usual.
Dan's nightmare is interesting. Is that Cavindish or The Ranger? If its LR he picked upon his feelings for Mom.
The only real development is Tonto seems to be think The Ranger is "blessed".
The powder blue threads make an appearance. :D
I tend to agree a 3 out of 5

I rate this issue rather high.
the art, as usual, is amazingly good. what a wonderful artist Sergio is, and what an incredible command of the characters he has! he defined them perfectly, and has a decent dynamicism.
the use of space in this issue was excellent. that was one of my main problems in the past; however, the story moved along excellently over the limited pages. there was a really nice touch of foreshadowing in Dan's dream that gave us an inkling of the future in only a few short panels. we got less from tonto and LR than i had hoped in terms of character development, tho. LR diving into the fire was nice, tonto right after him.
didn't understand the belief that LR had some kind of protection, tho. did tonto forget that the kid has already taken to bullets to the chest? perhaps this is only the first drop of the coming development.
sheriff is kind of interesting too. good first step towards LR's hero image.
on the whole, a really good albeit short issue.

I agree with Cindy. I just got the issue today and, while it was a quick read, I thought it had great artwork and slow but interesting character development. I could do without the hornets coming out of what appears to be Cavendish's mouth (maybe a foreshadowing since Dan is the father of the Green Hornet). I think this is the best issue we've seen in a while. I really feel good about this book again. :)
