    Done. This book isn't the best All-Star Western but it's a solid book that hits all the points of hilarity and character development. Now go DCN denizens, go, and keep this book a float. Read Full Review

    Palmiotti and Gray continue to make Jonah Hex a compelling character after all this time and show no signs of stopping. Following his adventure to his future/our present, Hex finds himself back on the new frontier, surrounded by a threat and more than a bit out of sorts from the trip. As Hex himself says, "Smells like home." With yet another great read in a collection numbering five score, "All-Star Western" #28 continues to be one of the very best comics DC has to offer. If you've missed out on Hex's first hundred tales spun by Palmiotti and Gray, now's the time to saddle up for the next hundred. Read Full Review

    All Star Western #28 wasn't as fun as usual, but what happened in it was much needed.  Palmiotii and Gray put the book back where it belongs it's just unfortunate the art didn't seem to be ready for the ride.  It is a must read for long time fans and the changes to Jonah are huge and are more than just superficial.

    ALL STAR WESTERN is still fantastic and still a series you should be reading. Palmiotti and Gray have a lot of love for this character and it shows in every issue. Hex finally makes his way back to the past, but the trip there is a lot of fun. Johnson and Fiorentino do a great job with the art and Atiyeh's colors are fantastic. This book is nothing but fun, and thanks to Gray and Palmiotti for 100 issues of Jonah Hex. Overall, I highly recommend this issue and series. Read Full Review

    Staz Johnson and Fabrizio Fiorentino share art duties. Both artists have unique styles that, on their own, are fine interpretations of the characters featured here. Unfortunately, the shift from one artist to another is anything other than smooth. It will definitely take you out of the otherwise enjoyable story, even if only for a moment. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, there are a lot of changes in the pages of All-Star Western #28. This is largely thanks to the return of a certain character from an extended absence. Based solely on the issue's final pages, the changes brought about will continue to twist and evolve the legend of Jonah Hex. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Feb 26, 2014

    Jonah Hex has always been defined as an outcast and now, thanks to some out of the box thinking on Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti's part, he is now an outcast in the most unexpected way possible. All-Star Western has always been a quietly weird and subversive book, but it seems that with #28, the team is fully committing to this and the book is all the better for it. This might not be the most action packed or violent issue of the series to date, but its an issue that gleefully uses the story troupes that used to define it to tell a quiet and engaging story, while setting up an interesting dynamic for future issues. Jonah Hex may be defined as one thing, but All-Star Western refuses to be defined by just one thing or conventional storytelling, and it's all the better for it. Read Full Review

    Hex is back in his own time and place! I really can't say how much that pleases me. Now if they can just leave him there and not instantly undo his facial surgery, I'll be really impressed. I also liked how Gina, despite being so sure of herself, found out almost at once she wasn't ready for the rigors of life back then. Read Full Review
