    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 9, 2009

    Wow. This issue carries one helluva punch, with Jonah Hex in full-out 'Man With No Name' regalia, a star turn from Tallulah Black, and some incredibly beautiful art from Darwyn Cooke throughout. The opening plays comically, with some cute bits, slowing turning horrific as the pages keep turning.

Mission accomplished. I'm sold. Read Full Review

    This isn't the final issue of "Jonah Hex." Dick Giordano comes in next issue, followed by the return of Jordi Bernet in issue #52. But issue #50 feels like a finale. And if it were, it would be a fitting one for this fine series. Read Full Review
