Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti's Jonah Hex:

"A book that anybody who loves Westerns should be reading.... Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti have crafted Hex into a character who stacks up with any played by John Wayne or Clint Eastwood."—Philadelphia Daily News

I've always loved Palmiotti & Gray's Western comics, so when DC announced that Jonah Hex would be in Gotham City for the New 52, I couldn't wait. I got #1 and was disappointed by the cliffhanger. It wasn't until vol 5 or so that the Hex TPBs started having definite miniseries that took up an entire volume. The previous TPB series I'd read, The Six Gun War, was great. However... Guns & Gotham left much to be desired. For one thing, the story of the Crime Bible (which showed up in 52 and Final Crisis, as well as their aftermaths and preludes) was anticlimactic. The introduction of several Gotham ancestors of Batman mythos characters was really neat, but it didn't make up for the abrupt exit from Gotham, which left a gaping cliffhanger, something that previous Jonah Hex TPBs had not. Still, for die-hard fans of the Gotham City series, as well as fans of Palmiotti/Gray and their take on Jonah Hex and the other DC Western heroes, it's worth reading.

Great accompaniment to the Batman: City of Owls story line.
