This was a weird issue, and I don’t think it really worked. The fight against the August 7 was wrapped up much too quickly, and then just as Hex finally gets around to tracking down the man he came to New Orleans for, a random Talon shows up and kills him. Hex doesn’t even get to fight the Talon! It was all for nothing and it pissed me off. I know they foreshadowed the involvement of the Owls a few issues ago, but it really did feel shameless, like it was just happening because this is the month the Court Of Owls tie-ins are happening. If the August 7 stick around then some of my annoyance will be alleviated, but still. The return of Tallulah Black is promising though, the only issue I’ve read with her in it was the brilliant Jonah Hex #50 with Darwyn Cooke art, I wonder if they’ll mention her and Hex’s dead son? That’s probably too dark. The back-up was good once again, providing a nice wrap-up to Nighthawk and Cinnamon’s origin, or rather, Cinnamon’s origin.

I agree, the way this story ended came across as really anti-climatic with the Court of Owls seeming to be something that was editorially mandated rather then an actual organic result of the story. I enjoyed the way that Hex and his companions took out the August 7 though.

I'm looking forward to Tallulah Black next issue though, as well as the start of the Bat Lash back up feature.
