Jonah Hex tracks the kidnapper Thurston Moody to New Orleans in pursuit of his bounty. But he and Amadeus Arkham find New Orleans under attack by the August 7, a group of anti-immigrant, steampunk terrorists. Only the renowned Nighthawk and Cinnamon stand between the terrorists and the immigrant workforce of this city. Hex consents to put the bounty aside (for the moment) to help his friends and finds himself in a battle to the death! Plus: Some of the best love stories are tempered with revenge, especially in the case of Nighthawk and Cinnamon.

    I really love that Gray and Palmiotti are exploring different areas of the old DC Universe and introducing readers to new characters that would have interacted with Jonah Hex. This is a solid jumping on point for new readers because it's the start of a new story-arc. We are introduced to new and interesting characters, and the dynamic between Hex and Arkham remains consistent throughout. Moritat lends his talents to the seventh issue making this a perfect book. Lot's of fun, adventure and excitement here; I definitely recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    I believe there to be a lot of potential with this second story, as they have already found a great mix of backstory and current strife. It is certainly something I am looking forward to reading for many issues - just as much as I am looking forward to the next installment of Jonah's great adventure and confrontation with Z.C.!

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Mar 28, 2012

    The Nighthawk and Cinnamon backup written by Palmiotti and Gray and drawn by Patrick Scherberger is a great little introduction to a character that new readers may not know too much about. Combining both the main story and the backup, All Star Western is a book I feel is every bit worth the $4 price tag. Maybe if you aren't sure about the genre or don't have a long standing knowledge of Jonah Hex, you might flinch at the price, but fans of this section of DC's line or of Hex himself can't help but be in love with this series.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Mar 31, 2012

    If you haven't read All-Star Western because it took place in Gotham City, and your distain for anything even remotely related to Batman, turns your stomach, I think you'll find this issue a nice change of pace. Different location, more western characters from DC's vault, a story written by the dynamic duo of Palmiotti and Gray, with art by Moritat is a win/win/win/win all around. All-Star Western #7 is a great jumping on point, and earns 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 28, 2012

    Unfortunately, Moritat's artwork isn't really up to snuff this month. His style seems to vary quite a bit from month to month, and in this case it becomes far more loose scratchy, with flat characters that don't do enough to convey action and motion. The art in the backup feature is far stronger and more refined in comparison. Still, this issue goes a long way towards proving that All-Star Western has strong legs beyond the Batman connections.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Apr 3, 2012

    Whatever else you have to say about this series, you have to admit it's unlike any other title out there, which would be virtue in itself enough. Luckily, we're also getting some fairly decent story and art out of it, though it hasn't quite found its stride just yet. Read Full Review
