Death of Zorro #1

Sooner or later, we all die. Is that fatalistic? Sure. But it happens. Even Superheroes die. Superman has died (and come back). Bruce Wayne has died (and come back). If comic deaths have taught us anything it's that comic deaths are somewhat trivial and no one is ever really dead. So when I mention that Dynamite is planning Zorro's death, take a deep breath, relax and realize that he'll probably be back.

Shipping in March 2011 is Death of Zorro #1 by Ande Parks and Esteve Pols. There's the obligatory Alex Ross cover, as as well as covers by Francesco Francavilla, Tom Yeates and Jerry Lawler. Zorro is in his sixties and has long since retired. He lives on a peaceful ranch in the state of California where he (as Don Diego) tends to his cattle, breaks horses and enjoys the company of his wife. That won't stop Confederate bushwhackers from attacking a nearby Indian settlement and bring Zorro out of retirement. He'll have help though in the form of the Lone Ranger.
