Shirley you must know the premise: a heroic masked man gallops about the West, righting seemingly-insurmountable wrongs with the aid of a whip-smart ally Tonto and his horse Silver. In issue one of this mostly-faithful re-imagining, a family of Texas Rangers faces down some sinister horse thieves (or are they something worse?), accompanied by flashbacks to the childhood of John, the youngest son. John grows up a clever kid, learning lessons about the value of life -- even criminals' -- and never forgetting his family's roots.

What might be the very best part of the book, though, is its dialog: there's not much of it. No sentence is more than eight or so words long, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and the action and the honest-to-God love of the genre. The first printing of issue one sold out completely, and for the first time in its history, Dynamite had to order a second printing. We can't wait for the next batch of stories.
