      That was Walt Disney's Zorro starring the marvelous Guy Williams as Zorro/Don Diego de la Vega. Far and away the best screen Zorro IMHO. Only 2 seasons, unfortunately, but Disney has finally released both of them on DVD.


      • So what happened to this great comics series?

        This series was so close in look and story to the Guy Williams' Zorro, I wondered when the books stopped showing up in my file at my local comics' store. Has the series ended? I really enjoyed it and I hope it will be continued. Thanks.

          • Why kill off Zorro

            Were sales so low for Dynamite's ZORRO that they have to kill off the character? Glad there is a new storyline but sorry to see this quality comic disappear.

                • The Mark of Zorro

                  Of the literally thousands of radio dramas I've heard The Mark of Zorro is one the best I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. I'd rank this one in my top 5 all-time favorites. I'd put this one in the same category as the original Star Wars radio dramas and the BBC produced Murder on the Orient Express. This production features some of the best voice acting I've ever heard.

                          • Sweet. I am always ready to read whatever Matt Wagner is writing.


                            • That is good news. The prior series did leave rather a lot hanging when it went on hiatus. Of course, Wagner will have to be careful when writing not to shake off new readers with too many references to the prior series, so I would expect the first issue or so to be a bit of a recap.
