Title: Resolve Part 8

Nearly two years after this final eight-issue storyline began, Dynamite’s reinvention of the Lone Ranger has finally come to its end. John Reid and Tonto finally come face to face with the man who murdered John’s family, and the confrontation is truly epic. This is a fantastic final issue, one that simultaneously makes me regret both the delays and the fact that the story is coming to an end. Brett Matthews has made the Lone Ranger a powerful, relatable hero, in the vein of Batman or Spider-Man, but without losing his essential self. He’s still the high-riding hero of the range that fans have loved for generations, but now he’s got a great backstory to go with him. Sergio Cariello pulls off a really bloody, dirty confrontation. There’s an intensity in their eyes that sells every page. John Cassaday’s cover? Well… let’s be honest here, it’s probably the easiest money he’s ever made, but damn if it isn’t effective. This run has taken a long time to get here, but the finale is well worth it.
