Today we give thanks for Gotham of yesteryear.
We give thanks for criminal psychology and anemic academia in the sordid back streets. We give thinks for Amadeus Arkham and his pursuit of truth.
We are ever grateful to not be the man called Jekyll or the monster called Hyde. Down on bended knee, we are grateful to not be beholden to a cruel stone called the Black Diamond. One personality covers all the bases, thank you.
We give thanks for that isthmus of flesh fording the surly gap between a bounty hunter’s upper and lower lip. For each of his storied scars. For his taciturn ways. For his relentless drive. For the man named Jonah Hex.
Most of all, we give thanks for this exclusive preview of next week’s All-Star Western #14 from DC Comics.

• The Black Diamond continues its journey through DC’s history as it shows up in 19th century Gotham.
• Someone has stolen the Black Diamond that Doctor Jekyll uses to create his infamous potion, and he’s hired Jonah Hex to track it down!
• While Hex follows the trail of Gothamites under the influence of a bootleg copy of the potion, Amadeus Arkham must face the mad doctor on his own.
Now, how’s about that preview?
