“Lines Not Crossed” continues the story of the Lone Ranger and Tonto from where book 1 left off, collecting issues 6 to 11.  The main threads of this TPB are the fall and rise of the Lone Rangers arch enemy Cavendish and further exploration of the Rangers no kill policy. The Lone Rangers unique brand of justice seems out of step with the western setting and he takes on almost a Batman like persona at times (he even has a cave hideout).  It gets him in trouble in this book when he rescues a Mexican fugitive who is perhaps undeserving of  the rangers brand of justice.  The art is excellent again and the Wolf Sequence from Paul Pope is worth particular mention even if the story that went with it was a little strange.  Not as satisfying as the first TPB in relation to the story but the artwork is as good if not better than the first.  [ISBN-13: 978-1933305660]. 6/10
