    All Star Western #31 is the beginning of the end of one of my favorites.  It's fitting that this issue highlights what drew me to it in the first dialogue, great action and fun.  F.U.N.  I wish more people jumped on the train earlier, but for those who waited, this is your last chance (for a while at least).  Jump on and enjoy the end of this great series.   Read Full Review

    The Madame .44 segment is definitely another strong outing that takes a sharp turn into gunslinging wakiness. Madame .44 may eventually become a tough, vengeance-seeking outlaw after last issue, but for now she goes swimming into another dimension to battle demons and corruption. The setting may look like the old west, but the multiple moons are a dead giveaway, as are the demon creatures. Major credit to Garcia-Lopez for creating a unique and imaginative world that, despite its grotesque features, fits right into a western anthology series. It's a crazy-pants story that is, if nothing else, simple fun. Though the story closes with an "End?" it is hopefully not the last we see of this character, especially during the final few issues of All-Star Western. Read Full Review

    ALL STAR WESTERN is sadly wrapping up, but it's going out in style. This is and has been a fantastic series with its own style and tone that separates it from the rest of the DCU. The current story line is incredibly interesting and fans won't be able to wait to see how it plays out. Madame.44, from the back-up story, is a really cool character, but the overall story is just ok. However, this is, overall, an exceptional book and series and I highly recommend it, especially if you love westerns. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson May 29, 2014

    "All-Star Western" #31 is a worthwhile if surprisingly uneven comic, but one that looks great throughout. With the title reportedly being slated for cancellation, this issue is a pretty good showcase of what existing readers have already been enjoying, and non-readers have been missing. Read Full Review

    I have a feeling this issue might be a bit of an aberration, and I'm looking forward to seeing Hex and Black get back on track. Read Full Review

    The story is simple enough to follow, and the action is fun, but in the end it feels like the story is cut awkwardly short. Read Full Review

    If I had to make a list of my top five favorite DC Comics characters right now, I can almost guarantee that Jonah Hex would make the cut. Nobody doesn't care like Jonah Hex doesn't care. And even when he's not doing much, it's a treat to just hang out with him for a while. Palmiotti and Gray's treatment of the character and his world has long been a part of my life, and I'm doing my best to cherish these final months with him. Read Full Review

    I've enjoyed this title, and am sad to hear it's going. This wasn't the best issue of it, but it certainly wasn't bad. Read Full Review
