This issue was pretty much a retelling of Jonah Hex’s origin. We see him as a kid, beaten by his dad, then sold to the Native Americans, then as a soldier in the Confederate Army, and then how he got his face burnt. I’m not especially familiar with Hex’s past, so it was good to see it all again, but I do know that there’s not much here that’s actually new, so it was fairly pointless in some ways. But then, when you think of it, all comics are pointless, so as long as it’s enjoyable, it doesn’t matter. I particularly liked the opening scene with Jonah’s dad absolutely destroying a group of Mormon hunters, that was some hardcore violence right there. The ending of the issue was cool, we’re back in the present and learning more about the Jekyll and Hyde plotline. It was great to see Pia Guerra show up to draw these scenes, where has she been since Y: The Last Man ended? I love her art, she needs to do more stuff!

I can't say I was a big fan of this issue. It seemed like a retread of other issues that Gray and Palmiotti already wrote in Jonah Hex's self titled series before Flashpoint.
