THE LONE RANGER #1
32 pages FC • $3.99 • Teen +
Written by ANDE PARKS
Art by ESTEVE POLLS
It’s been two months since Lone Ranger and Tonto hit the trails of the old west, looking for injustice. They’ve found plenty. Now, they come across settlers who have been victimized in a way that stirs memories in John Reid. Loss, vengeance, and redemption as pioneer idealism meets the reality of hard life on the prairie. A stand-alone tale that ties into an epic six part story that will test the mettle of the west’s most legendary heroes.

Mudman #2
Creator: Paul Grist
Welcome to Burnbridge on Sea. Ideal for that quiet little break when you want to get away from the crowd. Or the law. But Bank Robbers Vince and Dobromil find it’s not as quiet as it used to be. Not with Mudman around!

Rating: ★★★★★

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher really know how to make the most of any summer day.  The stepbrothers have some of the biggest and baddest adventures in animation, and they are so popular, they even pushed Thor 2′s release date.
But who is the real genius between the two?
I know what we’re going to do today!

    Haven’t listened to either show yet (I’ll be downloading them tonight), but I find it funny that the AV Club’s Reasonable Discussions podcast is also covering the Dark Crystal prequel. Is this a particularly high-profile work, or is it just a weird coincidence?

      It is a semi-high profile book that was teased heavily last May for Free Comic Book Day, and it features work Froud who did work on the Dark Crystal movie. Plus it is really good.

        How did this miss my Muppet nerd radar? I’ll have to check this out.

    I can’t beleive the news of D&D 5e didn’t make the news on the show. Any chance you can get an interview with some WotC staff? How will this affect Critical Hit? I know the current campaign is almost over but I thought Critical Hit was going to continue beyond the Celestial Crusade. What will happen??

    Talk about a cliff hanger…

    The Axe comics can’t be worse than the Subway (Sandwitches) mini-stories… Which is ironic, because you need to have some sandwitches on hand if you want to read them.
