What type of gold means certain death for Jonah Hex?

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Apr 24, 2013

    Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray have done it again. We've seen some strange gatefold covers on the DC Comics this month but this one makes sense. We've seen crazy crossovers before but the appearance of Booster Gold here opens up more questions rather than answer the ones since his disappearance in the New 52. Watching the events unfold is just one of the charming aspects of this issue. In an age where Western comics may not be at the top of readers' lists, Palmiotti and Gray show us that doesn't have to be the case. With the various connections we're seeing to the modern continuity, you get a feeling of anything goes even though certain events still need to be set in stone. Moritat continues to capture the vibe of the series. There's no telling what may happen next and that's the fun part of the series. Read Full Review

    Staz Johnson's pencils show a flair that is sometimes lacking in Moritat's work in the main story. Johnson offers up some dynamic page construction and framing that, coupled with the moody inking and coloring, effectively blend Wild West action with a more foreboding sense of horror. I'm eager to see where these backup features are headed once the full roster is finally assembled. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 26, 2013

    Between the two sections of "All-Star Western," this book has been picking and choosing from the legacies and heritage of the DC Universe, but this issue reaches into the future to mix up characters that are truly entertaining together despite themselves. Jonah Hex is an underappreciated character that meets like in the form of Booster Gold. Thankfully, Palmiotti and Gray continue to prove that their ability to write great stories isn't hinged solely on the character's level of popularity. "All-Star Western" #19 is a fun cross-section of the bizarre excitement and interaction that the DC Universe offers creators and readers. It's also the first installment of something bigger. What that is remains to be seen, but in Palmiotti and Gray I trust. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Apr 26, 2013

    As far as April's “WTF” moments go, “All-Star Western's” surprise hook is one of the best, presenting a team up between two eclectic DC heroes. Unfortunately, the abrupt and oddly paced story structure deflates keeps Palmiotti and Gray from striking gold. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 29, 2013

    Out of all of DC's "WTF" concepts, All Star Western feels the most crass, and that's already coming after the forced injection of superhero antics this book has already received since its relaunch, in the hopes of making it "profitable." Yet like a bad kidney, this book rejects this foreign premise almost immediately, limping along until the story mercifully ends. "WTF," indeed " only diehard fans of Booster need to mine for this fool's Gold. Read Full Review
