Dynamite announced this week a new Lone Ranger series from writer Chuck Dixon. THE LONE RANGER: SNAKE OF IRON #1 will feature writing the legendary Batman scribe, art by Esteve Polls and a cover by Dennis Calero. This book joins Brett Matthews’s critically acclaimed take on The Lone Ranger and the exciting new series written by Ande Parks in Dynamite’s successful revival of America’s quintessential Western hero.
In The Lone Ranger: Snake of Iron #1, The Lone Ranger and Tonto are in the crossfire as a bloody Kiowa uprising draws these western legends onto the warpath. The Spirit Horse has returned to the plains and calls the tribes to battle. Is this a ghostly apparition or something else? If The Lone Ranger cannot solve the mystery, then the land north of the Brazos will run red with blood!
Dixon had this to say about the project:
“This series was a particular thrill for me. I grew up on Batman, Tarzan and The Lone Ranger and now I get to complete that triumvirate as a professional writer when I finally get a crack at writing a Lone Ranger and Tonto story. This is The Lone Ranger as I’ve always imagined him; a fearless defender of the defenseless in a lawless land. These stories are first and foremost westerns and this one is six-guns blazing and wild horses the whole way!”
The Lone Ranger: Snake of Iron #1 will be in shops this July.
