Midtown Comics almost always shows all variant covers on its website, and I deliberately chose that cover to link to because the traditional covers are boring.

How many reviews have we had? Seems like only a handful.

I reiterate my offer to send my copy along to someone, free of charge. First Class should still be pretty speedy yet.

Jonah Hex 50

I don't know the character at all. He seems to be a bounty hunter gruff cowboy type with a ugly face. Works for me.

And it works for me because A) This is a simple yet touching and remarkable story in the life of Jonah Hex and I assume his female counterpart. I don't think I was impressed by it as the others here, but it's still very good.

And B) The artwork is wonderful. Daryn Cooke when he gets overly cartoony, gets on my nerves, but this, this was just fun to look at. Can't say enough about the art. Odd we went from Rob Liefeld and co to Daryn Cooke, heh.

Story 8
Art 10

Overall 9

If by best you meant written by a disrespectful little brat. Then yeah, you hit it right on the head of the nail.

My review didn't mention anything about The Spirit, separate the review from the other posts.

And disrespectful? What?

I did separate the posts from the review. I didn't say the review was a disrespectful brat, I said it was written by one.

The fact that you have a hard time understanding how you were disrespectful shows the level of your disrespect.

I'm not gonna get into it with you again. BUt you should probably go back and read the thread from the mention of The Spirit on, if you don't get it after being removed from the situation for a few days, you probably never will and Yoni will have been correct about you the whole time. Truthfully, I hope you can glean the information that is there for your own good.

Whatever, I still think you're overreacting.

As I said, I will re-read Cooke's run over Christmas, and see if I was just misremembering it, but I still maintain it was a poor effort from a creator I like a lot.

the fact that you still think this has to do with your opinion of Cooke's run is stupifying.

Is it to do with my 'lack of understanding of a medium I claim to love'?

Now that's disrespect.
