    Moritats art continues to impress me as usual. His raw, unpolished art style looks like it could be in a childrens book about the Old West. And I absolutely love the female Talons costume design.  Im a recent fan of steampunk costumes and settings, but All-Star Western has made my love for the culture grow even more. Read Full Review

    In “The Haunted Highwayman”, Palmiotti and Gray are joined by Scott Kolins for a re-imagining of Dr. Thirteen. This is a drastic change from the classic character who always existed in present day DC. Moving him to the All Star Western era is a pretty cool idea. It allows for more of a paranormal slant in the western genre and with Dr. Thirteen a Steampunk character seems to fit nicely. It's very cool to see this type of story featured in the genre. Plus, Scott Kolins is always an artist I like seeing stuff from. Read Full Review

    All-Star Western #11 is a pretty cool issue of a pretty cool book. I'm very pleased that Gray and Palmiotti seem to get free reign over the Old West of the DC universe, and it's a consistently entertaining read. Read Full Review

    Overall, I really liked this book. I think that the creative team did their best integrating the Court of Owls and the Talon into the story without making the whole concept seem forced and contrived. I think it's a well written issue with some absolutely beautiful art, and it's definitely worth reading. The dynamic between Hex and TAllulah is one that can be appreciated by new fans and old, and I think that incorporating her into this story was a smart move on the part of Jimmy and Justin. Moritat absolutely kills it on the interiors with his very rugged and rough pencils, which fits the mood and tone of the story perfectly (he's definitely the perfect artist for this title). If you haven't picked up ALL-STAR WESTERN yet, this isn't a bad place to start since it's an easy read, fits in with what we've been seeing in other DC titles (Court of Owls tie-in) and it does a great job introducing these new characters.

    Just get rid of the co-feature and this would be a solid monthly indulgence of the Western genre. Read Full Review

    On the plus side, the new backup feature this month is particularly memorable. The writers continue their Wild West-ification of modern DC heroes by offering up a new version of Doctor Thirteen. This take is basically an amalgamation of Sherlock Holmes and Teddy Roosevelt, which is every bit as awesome as that sounds. This segment has a fun horror vibe as Thirteen clashes with a Headless Horseman-esque villain named the Haunted Highwayman. Scott Kolins once again proves that his style is well-suited to the horror realm. Hopefully Doctor Thirteen can enjoy more of a lasting presence in the series beyond this short feature.
