Comic I Read: All-Star Western: The new 52: Issues 1-7
Plot: Jonah Hex goes to old frontier Gotham to try and solve a series of prositute murders with the help of Doctor Arkaham!
Review: I was not looking forward to this comic at all. It’s actually why I read those other books first as I didn’t want to read a western comic. But damnit I was wrong! This has been one of my favorite comics.
I think it works because they don’t try to overcomplicate things. Jonah Hex is a bounty hunter that gets paid to do what he does. It doesn’t make him evil but he’s not a hero either. He’s in between and it makes for a good character. He also has a blood lust and to put him with the uptight Arkaham as their chemistry works well together. It also lets us examine Hex without really having to spell everything out.
I say pick this up if you like Westerns or like Hex but I liked it and I don’t like either so just pick this up!
