    The Fandom Post - Ruben Rosario Nov 14, 2018

    This new iteration of The Lone Ranger is one of the best things on the comic racks and some of the best work that I've encountered this year. It's well plotted, has really good character work and contains great writing and art. While I've never been a fan of The Lone Ranger, Mark Russell and Bob Q are definitely doing their best to make me a convert. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Nov 7, 2018

    OverallThis is another fun issue, which mixes a little history with the politics and social mores of the period. Mark Russell's writing treads very carefully with some rather difficult subject matter. He manages to portray the casual racism of the period really well and Tonto's brief quip about hiding in plain sight among other natives illustrates the ignoranceof the period without it coming off as too preachy.

    I'm just not sure it's a good Lone Ranger story. I'm still willing to maintain an open mind, but this issue makes it difficult. Read Full Review

    Lone Ranger #2 is a quick read but also manages to pack a lot of fun into its 22 pages.

    This comic gives a proper introduction to Tanto. We get some character background and its quickly established that he is not going to be some silly sidekick or lackey for the Ranger. He may play the fool but he isn't one by a long shot. He's educated and may actually be more in touch with the setting than the Ranger is.

    The issue continues the land plot. Corrupt politicians decide to move forward with securing property records until the land is fenced in by Barb Wire. 

    The premise sounds absurd until you look into the matter further and find out that the story is based in actual Texas history. Mark Russell is a master more

    The action scene starts to fall apart around pages 9-10. This issue would be vastly improved with better transitions between scenes.
