    I have indeed read Allendes novel in the past month since the first issue hit shelves. Being a visual learner, I love seeing this story come to life so I really dont mind the coverage of Diegos childhood and the urban legend stage of Zorros career. The character is timeless and the character will always appeal to any age group or generation. One has to remember that without Zorro, who does indeed predate Superman and Batman, the landscape of heroes in popular culture might look a little different. I am really looking forward to seeing what Matt Wagner brings to the legend. Read Full Review

    Essentially, I wish the creative team had more closely followed a book like Lone Ranger as inspiration. There's no reason to try and burn through Zorro's backstory at such a breakneck pace. The character is appealing regardless if the reader knows exactly how he learned to fight or ride a horse. The potential is certainly here. The art is generally pleasing, and Wagner has proven himself time and time again in his creator-owned works. The execution of this book just calls for more grace and finesse, something the real Zorro would wholeheartedly understand. Read Full Review
