    This comic lacked that impact for me because I really didn't know(or particularly care)who any of the characters were. Fans of DC's western comics probably loved this issue(I guess...)but for me, I could have done without it. Read Full Review

    If you're reading "Blackest Night" and you want a tie-in to bide you over, you could do a lot worse than this one. Unless, of course, you take "Blackest Night" seriously. But why would you want to do that? Read Full Review

    On a more positive note, I will say that as a big ol’ fanboy who loved himself some Who’s Who back in the day, it was cool to see all these weird and obscure characters. It was also really cool to see a Bill Sienkiewicz cover! Other than that, the best part of this comic was the preview for Brian Azzarello and Rags Morales’ First Wave comics. Man, Morales looks like he’s going to outdo himself with this one. That guy keeps getting better and better with every project he works on and… what? Oh yeah, Weird Western Tales. Just don’t bother.
