When you've lived the kind of life that Jonah Hex has, there isn't much that can unnerve you. So what is it about a kid named Billy Dynamite that has him so shook up? A tale of epic violence, fisticuffs, tragedy and, yes, dynamite, as illustrated by classic JONAH HEX artist Vicente Alcazar!

    This book has become one of my favorites to read. Usually, it gets a 4 out of 5 with no problem, but I really loved this story. It had everything I wanted in a western: gun fights, outlaws, dynamite, and lots of western hat action too. If you've ever been interested in a western style book, or Jonah Hex, do yourself a favor and pick this issue up. Read Full Review

    A disgustingly disfigured bounty hunter with a heart of gold in a series of one-and-done comics that should appeal to any fan of good westerns and stories with ambiguous morals - it amazes me that DC didn’t give away an issue of Jonah Hex on Free Comic Day, especially with a movie coming out. But then, the movie doesn’t exactly look like it’s going for the same tone as the comic, so maybe I’ve already got my answer. Anyway, this issue is another good one. I was going to give it a B+ because I wasn’t really in love with the art (not that it was bad, but I’ve become so accustomed to Jordi Bernet’s work on the serires that Alcázar was kind of a shock to my system) but I love revenge stories so much, I’m going to bump it up to an A-.

    Booze, bullets and dynamite. Honestly, there isn't a single good reason not to pick this up. If you like this latest outing, chances are you'd find the previous ones just as compelling. There's a minimum amount of investment required for diving in and enjoying this character. In a time where storylines can go on for months and years at a time, that's a comforting thought.
