The Lone Ranger #15The Lone Ranger #15
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 5, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #15 kicks off a four-part story line that looks to take the Ranger & Tonto to places around the country that they’ve never been before. And, I’m sure, where ever they go, adventure and trouble are sure to follow.

Thank you, Ande Parks, this is JUST what I was in the mood for…a big Lone Ranger summer story arc!! The Ranger and Tonto are on the chase of a crooked government agent, and their search takes them from the Missouri River to…well, that would be spoiling. As usual, what starts as a quiet, low key search for justice ends up a full blown bar-fight/shoot-out. Just like any story set in the old west should. What I really loved about this issue was that it delivered everything I wanted and have come to expect from this comic-action, adventure, a solid, compelling story that has a definite ending yet leaves just enough to whet your appetite and get you psyched for the next issue.

‘The Lone Ranger’ Trailer: Witness The Rise Of An American Legend

The Lone Ranger Header

Of all the summer blockbuster films out there, Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger has to be the most interesting to see. Slapped with production delays, budget cuts, and screenplay rewrites, it seems like the odds were against this film. But four trailers in, and The Lone Ranger still looks like it has that sparkle that Pirates of the Caribbean had, thanks in part to Johnny Depp being cast as Tonto and the huge action sequences that will surely wow audiences.

This final trailer exemplifies exactly why Depp is basically the face of almost very Verbinski movie ever made. The director wasn’t afraid to shy away from admitting that the film will take a Sancho Panza storytelling angle. It also helps to know that Depp is a much more marketable name than Armie Hammer. But that really shouldn’t take away from the fun that is The Lone Ranger.

Check out the trailer below.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 3, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #14 is the very definition of the word “payoff.” Not only is it a great issue, it’s one that rewards long time readers for sticking with the series. Not that we needed a reward. An awesome comic every month is pretty much reward itself.

THIS has got to be writer Ande Parks‘ finest issue yet, and I mean that sincerely. Sure, I say that all the time, but after reading this issue, I don’t know how he’s going to top himself after this. Now, you won’t get any spoilers, but this issue deals with something that happened years ago (in the book, not in real time) and it’s not even something that we knew was coming. Now THAT’S storytelling! Did I mention that this is a “one & done” issue? Yes, it’s ALL those things! Great dialogue and a great story, this issue from Parks. He could write this book forever and I’d be happy.

Cover by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 27, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #13 starts out REALLY different. For about two panels, I thought that I was reading the wrong review copy. Then, everything started to fall into place and it fell into place VERY well.

Ande Parks uses a great storytelling method to tell this issue’s very heroic tale of The Lone Ranger. I don’t want to give it away, but it’s unique and, to my knowledge, it’s never been done in this book before. Very groundbreaking in the western genre. As for the meat of the story, it’s a fantastic tale of The Lone Ranger and Tonto being their normal heroic selves, and rescuing a group of Asian girls who are being sold by a VERY crooked criminal. What I loved about this issue, and all Park’s issues, is that it’s not ever a “normal” Cowboys & Indians tale. There’s always a twist, or a moral, or both. And THAT’S what makes this book fantastic month after month.

Watch Now: Ride For Justice With ‘The Lone Ranger’ In This Super Bowl Spot

BAADASSSSS!   |

The Lone Ranger Image

Hi-yo Silver! The first TV spot for Walt Disney Pictures’ summer western spectacular The Lone Ranger has premiered during tonight’s Super Bowl and now it is available online for those of us – myself included – who don’t watch football to enjoy.

You can watch the 90-second spot here below.

The studio and director Gore Verbinski definitely put together a humdinger of a teaser here with plenty of action, mythologizing, and even a touch of light-hearted banter from stars Johnny Depp (as Tonto) and Armie Hammer (as the Ranger). The whole “yes-no-yes-no” bit at the end gets tiresome though. At least the focus is on Hammer’s character this time instead of the footage being all “Lookee at Johnny Depp with a bird on his hand and crap” and runaway locomotives, and Depp doesn’t look to be taking this stuff completely seriously. That is a relief.

Release Date: January 23, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #12 is nothing short of excellence. We’ve had a full year of great stories by the same creative team. That is VERY rare in today’s comic industry.

In this issue, writer Ande Parks brings a great story line to an end. I’ve really enjoyed this arc, because of Parks ability to tell different kinds of stories within an ongoing title. In this story, we’ve had some vastly different pieces. Issues ranging from solo Lone Ranger tales, Tonto’s origin, the origin of the Indian tribe that Tonto is from, and finally, a good , old fashioned Lone Ranger climax. What I was most impressed by in this issue was Parks ability to show just HOW different the characters are, yet how these characters get along so well, despite their differences. Very powerful issue.

Hans Zimmer Replaces Jack White As Composer On ‘The Lone Ranger’

The Lone Ranger Image

It looks like Disney has hired a new composer to conduct the score for Gore Verbinski’s upcoming western actioner The Lone Ranger. We previously reported that White Stripes and The Raconteur’s frontman Jack White was set to make his film-composing debut by conducting the score for the film. It seemed like a perfect fit at the time, given White’s musical background. But somewhere in between that announcement and the release of the second trailer, White dropped out.

The Playlist discovered the change when they saw Hans Zimmer’s name attached as the composer instead of White’s. This isn’t the first time that Zimmer has conducted the score for a Verbinski film. Zimmer also conducted the score for all four Pirates of the Caribbean films and Rango has well.

The Lone Ranger #10The Long Ranger #10
Written by Ande Parks
Art by Esteve Polls
Colors by Marcelo Pinto
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 3, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

For the most part, The Lone Ranger #10 ends the absolutely brilliant Tonto origin story. This has been a really solid story, and what it DOESN’T do is make ticked off that the main character hasn’t really been in the spotlight of the book at all. It’s like a Tonto mini-series withing the pages of the title, but the story is so good, you don’t mind at all.

What praise can I heap on writer Ande Parks that I already haven’t? The story in this issue is great. He gives recaps of the last few issues in totally natural dialogue. This issue we get to see Tonto at odds with his own people and how he became the lone warrior that he was when he first met John Reid. It’s not a feelgood story, but at the end, you’ll be totally satisfied having read this great comic, and the ending promises some big time action in the near future. It’s nice to see that, while separately, Tonto and The Lone Ranger work together like a well-oiled machine, when they’re away from each other and on their own, they are somewhat different people, which just goes to prove that they NEED each other as partners to function as the premiere heroes of the old west. some great characterization from Parks in this issue.
