LONE RANGER #25
Art by Francesco Francavilla
With the last LR issue (#25) in stores tomorrow, I thought to put together all the 25 covers I did for this run since issue 1 plus the 5 I did for the Lone Ranger and Zorro mini that came out right before this run. (that’s almost 3 years of uninterrupted covers for this great series written by Ande Parks and drawn by Esteve Polls)
Missing drawing the Ranger, Tonto, and Silver already :(

My favorite is Sue staring at Johnny in the UN Lobby.
Esad Ribic is a master of using lighting and perspective.
-My favorite one is the first image. He only fully rendered a few parts of Thor’s left arm, Mjolnir, his mouth, and his nose. The rest is just suggested by the shading. I look at Esad’s work and I see a lot of echoes from the great illustrators of the Turn of the Century (1900-1901) and the Golden Age of Comics.
This guy is GOOD. I found these convention sketches on:
Yeah. These are sketches. Not fully finished works.
Like a said, he’s good.
He is fantabulous.
