This book should be re-titled to ‘Jonah Hex is the toughest mother-fucker in all of human history’, he killed that Giant Bat in like a page! Awesome. And then the raid on the mines, that was a gun-battle for the ages. I liked the twist that the concerned father at the start of this story were the villains, probably because I wasn’t really expecting there to be a twist. I hope everyone noticed that Moody’s house was full of Owls, that’s a definite connection to the Court and what Snyder is doing in Batman. It’s a lot of fun to spot the links between this book and Batman, and stuff like Hex meeting Bruce Wayne’s ancestors may be obvious, but it does work. Despite me loving these little links and hints, it’s cool that the book is heading out of Gotham for a while and we’re going to see New Orleans. Those characters at the end are that era’s Hawkman and Hawkgirl reincarnations right? The Barbary Ghost back-up was good once again, and I liked that even though Bo Long was killed, the story can continue as Barbary Ghost hunts for her mother. I’d certainly be up for a sequel. What’s the next back-up story does anybody know? I want Bat-Lash!
