Not the best of Jonah Hex
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 8, 2017
This is volume five in DC Comics’ story of Jonah Hex. Hex is a bounty hunter operating in the Wild West and this book is a collection of short stories about his adventures…and in this volume I would say also his misadventures. Volume five collects issues 25-30.
In this volume we see in the beginning Jonah Hex meeting his son and he doesn’t react rightly to his long lost son. In fact Hex comes out swinging. Which is rather disappointing. Hex is indeed a figure that is a disturbing man; a wild cowboy and bounty hunter best left alone with his skillset.
Previously I didn’t particularly enjoy the fourth volume as much for the fact that there was too much references to saloons and what comes with it. I thought I give Jonah Hex at another try since previous works were fun reading and I started to enjoy Western genre graphic novels and there are not a lot of them out there. At this time I’m given the Jonah Hex 2006 “New 52” series a break. May be my “luck” had run out with Jonah Hex although I did enjoy the few “All Star Western” that I read with Jonah Hex in it.
