    Overall, The Man With No Name gets off to a pretty good start, and warrants the picking up the next few issues or the inevitable trade at least. Like I said earlier, Dad would have liked it, and thats good enough reason for me to be enamored with this nostalgic work but definitely NOT the only reason to be. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers May 10, 2008

    I think this series has a great deal of potential, especially since I firmly believe the Western genre is on the verge of a rebirth. Gage has an excellent grasp on the character, and I think he understands there is really no place to put his own personal stamp on the character. This is a character deeply rooted in Americana and in cinema, and based on this first issue Gage seems to truly understand the character and his role in popular culture. This series does need to stay away from becoming too much of a stock Western that features a classic character but also needs to stay 100% true to the source material. Dias and Gage seem to have a firm grasp on this, and I am really looking forward to the continuation of this series. Read Full Review

    I've voiced more than a few points regarding how this adaptation falls short of the original films, so I feel inclined to point out that Wellington Dias' art is far from a shortcoming. On the contrary, Dias' crisp, boldly rendered artwork and his compelling staging carries this issue from start to finish, and it's he – not Gage – who comes closest to capturing the spirit of the original works. Sadly, the book still falls a bit short in that regard. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn May 14, 2008

    The Man With No Name #1 was a nice debut issue. The Man is a natural fit for the world of comic books since he has served as the archetype for the modern comic book anti-hero for several decades. The Byronic hero set the precedent for the early anti-hero characters like The Man with No Name. And the Man with No Name has clearly influenced many modern anti-hero comic book characters.
