These guys seem to know what they’re doing!” – Comic Book Resources

This arc’s looking to be a tale of her first love (and her first lost love?) and it similarly keeps the romantic stuff terse without feeling clipped, and tender without feeling over-wrought.” – Comic Vine

Alta-California is a land under the iron rule of a military dictatorship, yet freedom and justice have a champion with a flashing blade—the masked rogue known only as El Zorro! Yet even this fearless nocturnal avenger is only human…and tragedy can’t always be averted.   When the Alcalde’s soldiers murder a young farm family, events are set in motion that will change Zorro’s world forever.  As Alcalde Quintero and his devious master-at-arms, Esteban Pasquale again attempt to lay their hands on the secret gold mines that lay beneath the lands of the Pulido estate, Don Diego de la Vega again finds himself reunited with his estranged sweetheart in an effort to save her father from persecution.  All the while, Diego is unawares that his own father has stumbled upon a closely guarded secret—the fact that his seemingly indolent son is, in fact…ZORRO himself!
