The people of Casket Canyon seemed so excited to have Jonah Hex for dinner. That's because he doesn't suspect that he's supposed to be the main course! With a horrific snowstorm brewing outside and hungry cannibals at the door, Jonah Hex finds himself with one foot in the grave and the other on the dining-room table. And if the cannibals don't kill him, the cold will! Featuring the work of up and coming artist Fiona Staples (NORTH 40)!

    Artist Jordi Benet resumes his duties in #67, but Casket Canyon is a superlative piece of Western fiction, from Gray and Palmiotti's metered, visually oriented writing style to Fiona Staples' exemplary pencils. I look forward to seeing more of her work, preferably on this book, but as long as she's doing anything that'd be great. I regret not jumping onto Jonah Hex earlier, and I'm certain that readers of this issue will feel the same. When comics hit their mark, they hit it, and this issue nails it dead fucking center.

    And that last statement is true for this series. Unlike other series that pile on a convoluted continuity, Jonah Hex's stories are lean, mean and sharp. There's no wasted effort, and it makes for a very satisfying read. Read Full Review

    I said this won't be my last issue of "Jonah Hex," but I'm afraid this issue has set the bar rather high. I look forward to next month and hope that Gray and Palmiotti can deliver another equally chilling tale. Read Full Review

    Once again, Jonah Hex delivers. If you aren't picking up this book on a regular basis, I do insist that you do. Month in and month out Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and whatever artist they have on tap deliver a great done-in-one story. This issue does not buck that trend. Read Full Review

    Overall, pretty good issue. I would like a little extension on the story, but it hits the right notes and should be fairly well liked by fans of the series and of Western genre. Read Full Review
