Publisher’s Blurb:
Stampede! Part three of the “Hanging” story line finds Lone Ranger ready to swing from the gallows of a town called Utopia. Tonto has made his way back from death at the bottom of a canyon, but now he has just one chance to save the Ranger. Taking that chance could leave both heroes dead, along with half of Utopia’s citizens. It’s a deadly stampede of justice, as the Hard Country arc nears its thunderous conclusion.

Reviewer’s Comments:
I enjoy watching reruns of The Lone Ranger series on TV, but I’ve never read any the Ranger or Tonto’s adventures in the comics until now, and boy, have I been missing out.
Issue five in this new volume of Lone Ranger stories finds our Ranger literally at death’s door thanks in part to the town of Utopia’s maniacal leader Marshal Dorsey and Tonto racing to get to him in time using the quickest and also deadliest means to do so.
The story is written well, Ande Parks does an excellent job. There is suspense, drama, action, all leading to a cliffhanger conclusion. Esteve Polls’ illustrations are wonderful, especially the action sequences. One in particular, involves Tonto making a huge entrance. The scene is visually powerful and captures the action magnificently.
The Lone Ranger is on a roll and readers will want to ride into the night with this series.
