    If you're too young to have experienced these characters in their heyday, this is for you. If you remember thrilling to these characters' adventures when they were done regularly, prepare to fall in love all over again. The story effectively channels the heroism and power of these characters and the visuals will take you back to those thrilling days of yesteryear. This is a love letter to both of these iconic heroes. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 11, 2016

    With its eye set on social commentary and armed with a strong connection between its leads, The Lone Ranger/Green Hornet #1 is a debut with both brains and heart. Michael Uslan, Giovanni Timpano and Pete Pantazis deliver an unexpected treat with the debut, one that rises above its marquee team-up to present a comic that is more than just spectacle and vintage adventure storytelling, though it does have its fair share of those as well. The Lone Ranger/Green Hornet #1 gets you in the door with the promise of a team-up for the ages but leaves you mulling over emotional and political themes you couldn't possibly have predicted.

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Pollock Jul 6, 2016

    Overall there isn't really a lot I can say about this comic. A lot of it was just the Ranger talking about his heyday and having flashbacks to his old adventures in large spread pages that just stopped any sort of plot advancement to set the scene. We got next to no development on the Green Hornet. It is as if the series expects you to just know who he is while at the same time having no idea who the Lone Ranger is. The story is pretty clich and riddled with almost cringe worthy dialogue. It is set in an alternate reality, or at least it has to be without being a bit insensitive but relies on real-world villainy and stops just before it gets exciting. Read Full Review

    Although it did take a while for this story to come to life and there were ups & downs along the way, Id say there was enough here to have you at least try the next issue. Read Full Review
