Sneak Peek: 'Lone Ranger' Vol 2.

22 December 2008 5:43 PM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Just in time for last minute gift buying, Dynamite Entertainment releases the second Lone Ranger trade paperback, Lines not Crossed, on Wednesday.  The book collects issues 7-11 of the well regarded interpretation of the classic radio hero.  The stories are from writer Brett Matthews with art by Sergio Cariello and covers from John Cassady.

From the solicitation copy:

The Lone Ranger is an unrelenting tale of the American West. Texas Ranger John Reid seeks revenge for the murders of his family and friends, only to find justice... and that he's something greater than he ever thought he could be.

In "Lines Not Crossed" and "Downbeat" -- the thrilling adventures of The Lone Ranger continue as he and Tonto find themselves caught between frontier justice and a condemned man. As the hangman's noose draws tighter -- and Butch Cavendish ever closer -- The Ranger and Tonto must uncover the truth behind a violent shootout. »
