I’m back from the comic shop this week and I got one new comic plus a trade paperback collection:

  • Usagi Yojimbo -124
  • Incognito by Brubaker and Phillips
  • And now for a review of something I’ve read recently.

  • “The Lone Ranger Volume 3” by Brett Mathews and Sergio Cariello
  • This is the third volume of the Lone Ranger from Dynamite Entertainment and I’ve bought them all so obviously I like the series. That being said I think this is the strongest volume in the series. It kind of ended in the middle of a story but that didn’t affect my enjoyment of it.

    The origin part of the Lone Ranger’s story is over and I find that a good thing because I’m tired of origin stories in general. Not that they can’t be well done but they’re all nearly the same. Now we move on to a story of the Lone Ranger and Tonto helping a lawman to track down a killer.

    That’s pretty much all there is to the plot because this book is more about the characters, who they are, and how they play off each other. The writer, Brett Mathews, did a nice job with this interplay. It was the peppiest script so far.

    Sergio Cariello, once again, did a fine job on the artwork. His storytelling is good and his drawing is nice. He was helped out by a good coloring job by Marcelo Pinto. Both the color and the drawing set the mood very well.

    Not much more to say other than I liked it. All three volumes of “The Lone Ranger” are solid tales of the western hero. Whether you like comics in general or westerns specifically “The Lone Ranger” is a good read.
