I've missed going to comic shops on a weekly basis so I've decided to join you numbskulls. here's my review:
While Darwyn Cooke's art may give Punchy boners, it gives me feelings that I only experience when I see a half-naked Salma Hayek wet from, what I can presume, showering in slow-mo. I got more than just a boner. I got a boner, orgasm, and premature ejaculation ('cause I read too quickly). Kleenax please.
Seriously, though, a comic book only succeeds when the story is great. The art, while an intregal part of the story, only goes so far when the writer has no skills. Not the case with Jonah Hex #50. In a perfectly crafted story, Palmiotti and Gray cover Jonah Hex and Tallulah Black's lifes over a brief amount of time with much of the focus on Tallulah. While Jonah does his bounty hunter thing, Tallulah retires and lives a fairly normal life until Jonah's problem becomes her's and her problem becomes his.
Palmiotti and Gray tell a complete and satsifying story in less than 50 pages while there are graphic novels and trades out there that cannot even make that claim in 200. Story-wise, it doesn't get better.
As for the art, I'm a big fan of Cooke's and his art has become more detailed and more suited for this story. The panel of Jonah Hex killing a man while the man leaves an outhouse is an instant classic.
this was the best comic book story i've read in awhile and deserves the grade it gets big time.
