The Lone Ranger #9

The "Native Ground" storyline continues as we see further into Tonto's past after the death of his wife and before his days as "the Lone Ranger's faithful Indian companion."

The Lone Ranger #9 certainly gives us the darkest version of Tonto we've seen Dynamite Entertainment (or any other publisher) present recently as he stalks and murders the soldiers responsible for the raid on his tribe. With his revenge complete, it will be interesting to see how events weigh on him throughout the rest of the arc.

I don't know that I'm excited to see three more issues of "Native Ground," but what we've gotten so far has been enough to keep my interest. Writer Ande Parks continues his use of Native American folk tales to help frame the story, which works well here given how little we get verbally from Tonto himself in this issue. For fans.
