    It’s another great issue in a long line of great issues, one that perfectly captures our fascination with the heroes of the old west and gives us a touch of the harsh truths that film,novel and comic book often choose to overlook. What can I say? Every cliché applies, and if you’re not reading Jonah Hex, you should be. Read Full Review

    As I've said before, you can jump in on this book at any time. Each issue is its own story, so don't feel too worried that it's 57 issues into the volume, and you've haven't read any of them yet. You can pretty much just jump right in, and you'll be fine. This is one of DC's hidden gems. I say hidden because it feels like a lot of people overlook this book. In my opinion, next to Green Lantern, this is the only book at DC that has been consistently good for 50 issues, and I wonder how many people actually realize that. I may be getting a little preachy, but with games like Red Dead Redemption in homes across the nation, and people slowly becoming more intrigued by the western genre, why aren't more people reading this book? Or maybe it's because I'm in Chicago, and most people here aren't big western fans. Regardless, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Gray and Palmiotti continue to find new yarns to deliver about the ugliest man in the Old West. After fifty-seven issues, "Jonah Hex" has gotten to a point where I have started to expect formulaic tales or rehashed recollections of previous stories. That hasn't happened yet, and the fact that Gray and Palmiotti can drop in consequences from previous stories without also having to install serious backlog illustrates just how deeply these two writers have become entrenched as the writers of "Jonah Hex." They know Jonah Hex and they know what makes Hex tick. Their stories are always engaging and always entertaining. They may not always be as light-hearted as this issue is, but they do always offer a good, solid read. Read Full Review
