    ALL STAR WESTERN may have taken a jump into the world of science fiction here, but it works so well. This has quickly become one of my favorite DC on-going books. I love how this book is throwing some other DC notables in the mix, but it never feels forced. The art in this issue is great. I only want to see Moritat draw Hex now. That style truly fits this western hero. While the Batwing/Hex fight was pretty cool, where this issue leaves off got me super excited. Go out and treat yourself to some Jonah Hex... You deserve it.

    Let me say that again. Jonah Hex is in Arkham Asylum. That is seriously all you need to know to start reading this book NOW. Never mind the irony that Hex had been reluctantly partnered with Amadeus Arkham himself for a long while back in his own time. Come on now. You have to find out how Jonah Hex will react to the Calendar Man. Read Full Review

    The book loses some of its grounding, but earns credit for being truly weird in a way that Jonah Hex hasn't been since he time travelled back in the 80"s series. Some moments are awkward and strangely edgy, other moments are pure comic fun. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 1, 2013

    All in all, it's a slightly confusing issue for me, as I haven't read anything of the new Batwing, I didn't get the issue where Booster arrived in the past, and I haven't read enough Batman to know if the new Gotham is really this bad of a hive of scum and villainy. It's a fine looking issue, and I enjoyed the reading of it, but it's not a book that I expect I'll be raving over in a week or three. Moritat does very good work with the art here, and his horrifying Gotham cityscape is pretty excellent, but the Booster part of the story passed quickly, leaving Hex in a strange predicament that nonethless feels familiar.

    Moritat and Staz Johnson did a great job with the art, but overall this was the weakest issue of this series so far, despite some great dialogue. Read Full Review

    The back-up story at least gets to reach some kind of conclusion, even if it is rushed and generic, with the Stormwatch gang defeating the vampires and making it out alive, if maybe a little humiliated. Barely anything is learned about the characters involved, and with the lack of substance in the main story, if the price point is to be justified more attention should be given to that end.
