Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Grotesquely deformed cowboys don't die, they come back to fight another day in the hands of another batch of artists. Jonah Hex—scarred, ruthless bounty hunter with a conscience, the "thinking man's killer"—has survived numerous revivals, thanks to his enigmatic moral code and utter fearlessness. Palmiotti and Gray's version pares away some of the artistic pretense of earlier incarnations. Their Hex calls to mind young Clint Eastwood but even more world-weary and haunted, Josey Wales on a lifetime without sleep. The stories are to-the-point and delightfully un-PC doses of revenge and vigilante justice: a kidnapper who forced young boys to fight dogs meets his maker at the hands of those dogs; mass murderers who blamed their spree on a band of Apaches are handed over to them; savage, gun-toting nuns hole up in a town called Salvation. Ross's frequent use of long, narrow panels gives the stories a sort of wide-screen feel. Plot outcomes are usually apparent from page one, but the fun of getting there makes this an utterly enjoyable collection. (Sept.)

From Booklist

Jonah Hex is a bounty hunter roaming the nineteenth-century West, meting out cold frontier justice with a gun and an iron will. He dispatches crooked lawmen, rival mercenaries, and ruthless outlaws alike, never looking back or farther ahead than the next bounty. His reputation for cold calculation and a fast draw looms large in territories where law is often the first casualty. The stories collected here are stand-alones and reintroduce this classic DC character well. The creators pay unmistakable homage to the early pulp Westerns and earlier penny-dreadfuls that made the original gunslingers famous by employing easily recognized, wholly forgivable cliches and over-the-top dialogue. The art clearly nods to Clint Eastwood's classic westerns, especially in the framing of action scenes. And it's hard not to notice Hex's resemblance to the wandering man with no name. Whether meeting Mr. Hex for the first time or renewing an acquaintance made with his earlier incarnation in the early 1970s, western comics fans should be impressed by his frontier-noir adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hex at his best or worst depending on the individual
By Armchair Viking on January 24, 2018
Nonstop action in the brutal world of Jonah Hex. A great collection of short stories. I could not put it down. Buy it. Jonah would if he hadn’t spent all his money on skin care products.
