This "Mini-Series" is actually 4 unconnected one-shots with a wildly erratic shipping schedule and with a rotating creative team.  They show a much darker side of the Old West than one would normally expect in a Lone Ranger comic.  The first issue in particular feels like The Ranger and Tonto somehow wandered into "Weird Western Tales".

Longbox Junk - Invaders Now!

3932 views • Apr 27, '17 • (0) Comments

The Invaders confused me a bit.  I thought that they were an actual Golden Age team, but I was a bit surprised to find out that they were actually created in the 60's and retconned into the WWII era.  I wonder if this might be one of the earliest examples of this being done. 

That aside, I'm also not sure why this mini was noted as a crossover between Dynamite and Marvel, maybe some licensing issues with some of the Golden Age characters?  

ANYWAY. . .

Longbox Junk - Zorro Rides Again

5559 views • Apr 26, '17 • (0) Comments

This series leads off exactly where the previous Dynamite Zorro series ended. . .but a full year and a half later.  Why they took so long to continue the story, I don't know. It reminds me of how a season of a show like Walking Dead or Game of Thrones will end on a cliffhanger and pick up later on exactly where they left off. But unlike those shows, from the looks of the back issue values and print run numbers, it doesn't seem like anyone was particularly anxious to learn how this particular cliffhanger worked out.

ANYWAY. . .

El Zorro! The Fox. . .masked protector of the innocent and bringer of justice in Mexican California.  One of the major influences behind Batman and one of my all-time favorite characters.  To me, Zorro is the definition of hero.  But how does this classic character fare in Dynamite's hands, rebooted for a more modern audience?  Let's find out. . .

I actually read, updated and reviewed this seventy issue run of Jonah Hex (Vol 2) back in December, but over the weekend someone asked me about the blog post because they couldn't find it.  I realized then that I didn't do one!  

So let's fix that little oversight now with a HEAPIN' helping of DC's Weird Western bounty hunter!
