    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Nov 6, 2002

    This final issue is notable largely due to the fact that John Ostrander came up with a truly cinematic ending for his latest Western adventure, and Leonardo Manco's art does an absolutely stunning job of presenting this explosive ending. Now this big, impressive ending did serve to make the final showdown between the Rawhide Kid & Colonel Trask a bit less important that it really should've been, and the new Apache Kid is left largely in an observer role in this issue, as the Rawhide Kid performs his heroic efforts all by his lonesome. However, John Ostrander continues to show himself as the premier writer when it comes to delivering a western comic, as Apache Skies can proudly stand along side Blaze of Glory & the Kents, as a shining example that the western genre still has legs, at least with John Ostrander at the helm. The wonderfully terse dialogue exchanges, the supercharged gun play, and the big, over the top finish made this miniseries more than worth a look. Read Full Review
