Praise for The Lone Ranger, in the form of reviews and message board comments, has been outstanding!
"It is gratifying to see The Lone Ranger among the resurgence of Western comics in today's market. There is a place in the world for characters like these as long as teams like Matthews, Cariello, and White are on the job."
--Tonya Crawford, BrokenFrontier.com
"This issue is another home run!!! Great characterization from Matthews made this issue a gripping read. You feel every second of Reid's anger, pain, and sadness. It is absolutely spot-on. Tonto continues to supplant himself as one of the most hardcore bad-@sses on the racks today, and Black Bart is simply a stone cold killer who looms over the entire book. And, of course, the art is fantastic, as always. Top notch. People, do me, yourselves, and everyone else a favor and buy this book! Read this book! Tell others to read this book!!! It is simply that awesome."
