Comics Reading List

Just one this week...

Jonah Hex #41
Writers: Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti
Artist: David Michael Beck

In the last issue, Hex had been captured by a serial killer who cut off a couple of his toes, then managed a painful-looking escape before being rescued by an old flame. This issue wraps up the story, and it's no surprise that Hex and his gal pal meet out some gruesome vengeance. Not much actually happens in this book, but everything that does happen is just so damn cool and violent. Now I need to go watch some Sergio Leone films.

Beck's realistic style of art is attractive despite the gritty subject matter, and his gunfight panels are quite stylish. Unfortunately, the coloring on this title remains a little too dark.
