All-Star Western #10 (Bony little scab-picker Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jun 30, 2012 7:51 am

Even though the Court Of Owls all got killed in the most recent issue of Batman, they can still appear in the past, and All-Star Western is using them really well. Graymiotti are setting up a crime-war between the Owls and the worshippers of the Crime Bible, which is just such a cool idea, especially when you throw a wildcard like Jonah Hex into the mix. The Owls are trying to manipulate Jonah, but I’m sure that will blow back into their faces, especially since Tallulah Black is involved. I don’t know much about Tallulah, the only previous issue I’ve read with her in it was the excellent Jonah Hex #50 with Darwyn Cooke art, and whilst this issue doesn’t reach the tragic heights of that one (seriously, read that comic, it’s so sad), she’s still a fun character, and her interactions with Arkham were great. It was also good to see more of Alan Wayne, is he the Wayne who we saw went crazy in Batman? Could this story show that happening? I like spotting all of the little hints and nods to Batman in this book, it’s fanservice really, but it works. For example, I’m now wondering about whether the Officer Bard who got killed in this issue is an ancestor of Jason Bard. The back-up story here was about Bat-Lash, and it was a lot of fun, showcasing the character’s roguish nature, he’s the antithesis of Jonah Hex really, and I look forward to the two of them teaming up again soon. The art from Garcia-Lopez was fantastic too, but then he’s a legend he always delivers.

It's great to have Tallulah Black back. Everything she did was fun to read.
