Title: This guy, right?


All-Star Western #12 (A'int you polite Spoilers)

After this issue, I think it’s clear that Tallulah Black is the most bad-ass woman in comics. Seriously, the way she went about killing almost all of the Crime Bible worshippers in this issue was insanely hardcore. Throwing knives, decapitating people with axes, shooting with pistols, and then gouging out eyeballs. She is just relentless as fuck, and really, she was the main hero of this story, Hex and Arkham were the damsels in distress (oh alright, there was a flashback where Hex got to do some shootin’) which was very refreshing. In the end, all of the Crime Biblers are killed or captured (and then killed) and whichever member of the Wayne family it is ironically says ‘that’s the last we’ll see of them’. Don’t be so sure Mister! Just ask your great-great-grandson about it! Heh. The story then dovetails into the next one, with the appearance of a weird looking blond guy who claims to be working for a certain ‘Dr Jekyll’, and I think we all know where that’s leading. I think it’s really interesting how this title really isn’t even a Western anymore, it’s much more in the tradition of a Victorian Penny Dreadful or something. The Terrence Thirteen back-up was good once again, but it did remind me a bit too much of a Scooby Doo story, just with people actually getting killed.
