This book is just a lot of fun. As I mentioned over in my I, Vampire reviews, the art from Moritat in this issue is much improved over #1 because colourist Gabriel Bautista stopped using so much brown and used a bit more variety, and it made the book look a lot clearer and better. Graymiotti’s take on Hex is as spot-on as usual, and it’s great fun to spot all the references to Batman history in this issue, the Crime Bible is the biggest one, but some of the posse that was sent to kill Hex and Arkham were wearing masks that look very much like Scarecrows, I wonder what the connection is there? The double-page spread with Hex taking on the gunmen was just awesome, violent poetry in motion. The El Diablo back-up was a little cheesy, but it was fun, and Jordi Bernet artwork is always welcome, and hey, Zombies.

I'm liking the way the Lords of Crime are being developed as villains and they're scene was enjoyable to read, although I thought it may have taken up a little too much space considering how shortened the main story was by the El Diablo back up feature. It left me a little bit of a sense that not enough happened over the course of the whole issue. That sense wasn't enough to kill my enjoyment though. The El Diablo story I completely enjoyed though.
