    In that regard, All Star Western #29 is a throwback to the type of stories told in the Jonah Hex title before the New 52 launch. The issue is largely continuity free and, as mentioned previously, is a joy to look at. Readers looking to add a new title to their pull list should definitely consider this as it is in a great position for new readers to jump on. Given the sales numbers, it could use a few new readers. Those looking for a break from the regular grind of present day DC continuity should take pleasure in snarky adventures of Jonah Hex. Read Full Review

    The violence and savagery of the fight was vintage Hex. The contrast I mentioned from the modern era to the Old West was great. I really enjoyed the way they handled it. This really seemed like a Western for the first time in quite a while. Read Full Review

    All Star Western #29 was a unusual slip in an otherwise stellar title.  Palmiotti and Gray give us filler as they try to regain the momentum of the book now that it's back in the Old West.  I didn't like Cliff Richards' art and the ending seemed rushed and ill advised. Read Full Review

    ALL STAR WESTERN #29 isn't bad, but it's one of the weaker issues in what has been one hell of a series. Cliff Richards art isn't what fans are used to with this series, but the change is nice and he does a great job at sculpting faces throughout the issue. The problem lies in the fact that it's a story within a story and feels a tad like filler. However, this is a series that ultimately always delivers, so we're interested to see where it goes next.

    When i started reading this issue I wished Jonah Hex was still in the present. That changed as Jonah Told that story from his past. It got even better when Hex slipped the cowboys his Hopi blend tobacco.

    The writing is as clever as usual, but the art took a serious dive after Moritat left; its serviceable but nothing like it used to be...

    A foreshadow of cancellation? I gotta cut back so I wouldnt complain too much.
