In anticipation of the Transcontinental Railroad, Archduke of Arizona Gürko Langdon has enslaved the natives for labor on a state-wide railway, while he waits for the United States to honor his claim as sovereign of the territory, per the Treaty of Hidalgo-Guadalupe. Learning of the archduke's injustice to the people of Arizona, Don Diego de la Vega enlists the bounty hunter Django as his personal bodyguard as he sets off to undo Langdon's schemes. All too familiar with the cruelties of slavery, Django is eager to assist Diego on this mission, though it is more political than the gunslinger prefers... even so, there seems to be more to the o more

    The scale of the task facing our heroes is detailed in a superbly illustrated and coloured issue. Although Django is a peripheral figure at this point, my interest in this title has certainly been ratcheted up a few more notches. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Oscar Maltby Dec 19, 2014

    Overall, Django Zorro #2 is a meaty read. This isn't a glorified $3.99 pamphlet of punching, but a word-heavy character study in obsession. This does somewhat disrupt the flow established in issue 1, which won't be for everyone, but it admirably sets the stakes for what will undoubtedly be a memorable next 4 issues. Read Full Review

    "Django/Zorro" still has a lot of potential but this issue, which is nothing but backstory, ultimately falls flat. Read Full Review

    There's still an appeal to this unusual pairing of Wild West heroes, but so far the series hasn't done nearly enough to capitalize on it. Read Full Review

    One thing about Taratino - he likes to overextend everything. Sometimes it's bad, but (like this comic) it's ok. I think we needed to see the heritage of treachery that this upcoming villain came from.

    It just leaves you thinking man I can't wait to see how the main protagonists are going to interact.
