Now that’s a cover, brilliant iconic image and brilliant use of simple words. Guns. Gore. Gotham. Awesome. The interior wasn’t quite as good as the cover, but it was still very strong, the way the giant lug that Hex was fighting got killed surprised me, I didn’t expect Arkham to kill anyone. And then the bad guys whip out a massive machine gun! The wordless action scene which followed as Hex assaulted the wagon was great stuff, Graymiotti seem really good at knowing when they need to shut up and let the artist tell the story, it’s a skill that many writers don’t have. The ending with the three brothers killing that prostitute was shocking stuff, I wonder if it will get the comics ‘media’ a-flutter, although any concerns about alleged misogyny seem to have stopped now, perhaps they can’t get the hits when it’s a #3 rather than a #1? The back-up story with El Diablo was good, although it did end rather abruptly, I assume that this story will be continuing in other back-ups?

I didn't mind the main story, I quite liked it in fact -- the strange almost friendship between Hex and Dr Arkham continues to be fun to read. Having said that, I loved the El Diablo back-up, much more than I did the main story.

EL Diablo wasn't abrupt, it was just old school. I really liked this comic, so much so that I went back and got the last Jonah Hex series.
