Jonah Hex was only looking for a little peace and quiet, but he didn't know it was time for the festival known as San Juan's Day. He also didn't know that this festival tends to bring out the crazy in people, but he should've figured that out as soon as he met Rosa. That big knife in her hand should've been a clue

    This issue does have the usual excellent dialog from Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, but the story is really light. The last few issues really dove deep into the situations Jonah finds himself in, but this one is very light on story. It isn't bad, but it's the first in a long while that takes the foot off the gas pedal. Yes, there's some gore and there is another, slightly unfortunate death, but it just didn't feel like it had the same intensity or character story as much of Gray and Palmiotti's run. Nelson's art and Rob Schwager's colors are very good and the combination ranks high among the series' visuals, but my real critique lies in the story. Read Full Review

    You can check out the preview of this issue right here on CBR and also read up on an interview with Palmiotti and Gray from Kevin Mahadeo. Gray and Palmiotti bring a great deal of passion to this title, which is admirable, especially considering the fact that the title is reliable on a monthly basis, with regards to both a solid story and some very good (and frequently great) art. I'm not a "Jonah Hex" junkie by any means, but I know for certain when I sit down with an issue of "Hex," I'll be happy I did shortly after. Read Full Review
