    This book is one of the most consistent titles published by DC. I love the interactions between the characters, I think the art (Moritat) is perfect and very complimentary to the story, and I feel like this is a creative team that knows and understands who Jonah Hex and his supporting cast really, truly are. The back-ups in each issue are highly entertaining, and it's great to see some of these old DC characters get a little bit of the spotlight once again. Great story, awesome pacing and brilliant dialogue. You will laugh at every innuendo, I promise. Read Full Review

    J&J hit on all notes, with the Black action, and Hex making deals with Batman's ancestor, and even Arkham gets some hilarious potshots in on the CBers. "Perverse aberrations such as yourselves are the reason societies and religions formed - to elevate us from the fecal-smearing superstitious savagery of our murderous ancestors!" There's nothing better than a well-formed intellectual put-down like that. Read Full Review

    Next month's #0 apparently won't have a backup story since the tag at the end of this issue says: "Coming in two months: Tomahawk!" Now there's a character I haven't read in a long long time! I love how many awesome western characters are in the company's illustrious history. Add to that the new characters that Gray and Palmiotti are coming up with and you've got a goldmine of storytelling that has barely been touched upon. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Aug 29, 2012

    As always, I find myself a bit surprised that I enjoy this series as much as I do. But I'd enjoy it a heckuva lot more if it wasn't always saddled with a back-up I can't really care about. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Aug 22, 2012

    The dialog and pacing problems aside in both stories' conclusions, this book still shines for one reason alone… Tallulah Black. That first part of the Hex story is so damn cool that if you were charged $4 for just those pages, you'd come away pretty happy. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 22, 2012

    Fianlly, the writers wrap up their short revamp of Doctor Thirteen in the backup feature. The backup loses some of the fun factor it had in the previous chapter, as the story takes a decidedly grim turn. Even so, there's a lot to love about the idea of a Teddy Roosevelt-esque hero who battles evil with brains and common sense. Scott Kolins provides a bold, simple, but shadowy look for the story that suits the script well. More than any backup so far, I hope to see this Doctor Thirteen material return in a larger capacity down the road. Read Full Review

    Art's ok, story is ok. Re-readability was just not there for me. Read Full Review
