  1. I’ve been pretty off and on with this book, but I simply loved last issue and I’m very excited about the conclusion of the story.

  2. This has been pretty good.  Matt Wagner is one of my favorite creators, he is rocking this book and Madame Xanadu even more.  The art by Francavilla has been very good as well.  In this vein, I’m also enjoying Lone Ranger and Man with No Name…I enjoy a little "pulp" with my super heroes, this book delivers.


    Issue #8 was a fine last issue of the first "Zorro: Year One" arc.  The best part of this origin arc is that all the bits that make up the Zorro legend are laid out and explained, while the two main characters, Diego (Zorro) and Bernardo (his brother/servant/sidekick/chronicler) are thoroughly designated, and a believeable progression from childhood to masked avenger is laid out in detail.

    On the other hand, there so far hasn’t been a villain worthy of the title character, and in general everyone else in the story feels like stereotyped background characters.  I look forward to the next arc to see where Matt Wagner goes with this.

    The art by Francaville has been very good bordering on excellent.  Art 4.5. Story 4.0

  4. I felt the ‘intro’ story arc was a bit long, but It was great none the less.
