Meh.Over the top even for Jonah Hex.

Jonah Hex is always the character that I've thought doesn't work within the DC Universe but works very well when just gets to be a gunslinger. Here, Palmiotti crafts a dark and mostly sad tale of family and what it means to different people. The story isn't for the faint of heart. Its not an easy read because Hex isn't a terribly "likable" guy. He has his own set of rules and morals. The antagonists are cartoony bad at times and that doesn't fit here but overall, the story was good. The art is gritty and sketchy, which is a very good match for the tale told. Overall, a pleasant surprise.

Wow, if you're going to create a great, self-contained graphic novel for an existing character, where you recap their history yet still progress their allure and mystic, then Jonah Hex: No Way Back should be a reference point for anyone. Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray have consistently provided monthly one and done stories with the regular Jonah Hex title from DC but this format really allowed them to expand their skills and talents by showing some sides of Jonah Hex that a shorter story has to imply. The writing team was able to pull Tony DeZuniga (a Jonah Hex staple) back on with the art and he is able to give the story that gritty look that surrounds Jonah Hex's life. Rob Schwager provides that grim and dusty look to solidify the western feel for the story. Speaking of the story, this is where the book really stands out. An interesting twist for Jonah's history is brought out by revealing he has a half-brother. Faithful readers knew that his mother left, now we see more of why she left and the consequences of her actions. Even in the end, Jonah Hex harkens back to his childhood to open up his calloused heart and do what he feels he is obligated to, albeit in his way. The interaction and obvious differences between Jonah and his half-brother are played off well. Both have a purpose for the paths they have chosen. Really can't recommend this book enough to everyone, even if you are not a fan of Jonah Hex already. This book will both entertain and impress you at the same time!
