Jonah Hex tracks the kidnapper Thurston Moody to New Orleans in pursuit of his bounty. But he and Amadeus Arkham find New Orleans under attack by the August 7, a group of anti-immigrant, steampunk terrorists. Only the renowned Nighthawk and Cinnamon stand between the terrorists and the immigrant workforce of this city. Hex consents to put the bounty aside (for the moment) to help his friends and finds himself in a battle to the death!

Plus: Some of the best love stories are tempered with revenge, especially in the case of Nighthawk and Cinnamon.

  1. An Anti-Immigrant, Steampunk terrorist group? Only Jonah Hex.

  2. This book is so good and, while I enjoyed his time in Gotham, I’m glad that the series didn’t keep him there for too long. Jonah Hex really needs to ramble.

  3. Whatever keeps this book alive is okay by me. If that means arcs tied into Gotham history, that is better than no Hex book by this creative team.

  4. This is my last issue of the series.


  5. how this book is priced at 3.99 is beyond me. i love westerns, but this falls way short of where i think a good western should be.

  6. That is one gorgeous cover!

  7. Wait, anti-immigrant, or anti-ILLEGAL-immagrant?

  8. Of all the books in the new 52 this series has been the biggest suprise to me. As a long time Jonah Hex fan (since 1977) seeing him in a book that is not only selling but be enjoyable too makes my heart jump for joy!

  9. Wish he would have left Amadeus back in Gotham. That dude is starting to get on my nerves.

    • I agree. Though he is good for conflict with Hex, and he sometimes serves as the voice of the reader – his prissiness in the face of danger is irritating me.

  10. This was a good issue. A step in the right direction cause the new setting and new characters made this more fresh. Hopefully it doesn’t get bogged down like before and with the Court of Owls tie-in coming. Although considering the cover for #9 I think it’s obvious who’s in the Owl suit attacking Hex with this issue. Also, great art by both pencillers in this issue.


  11. I just picked this up for the first time since #3. So glad I did. Now I did this thinking that I would need to get some lead in with the Night of Owls. Watched an interview with Scott Synder and found out that, isn’t the case. Way to go ALL STAR WESTERN!

  12. I love this book, and one of the many reasons is because it doesn’t rest on its traditional western laurels. The weirdest f–king crap happens in this title! Jonah fights a giant monster in the sewers under Gotham? Jonah gets pulled into a fight club with a female ringer? Asian Chick single-handedly takes out the San Francisco mob? Bring it on! ALL STAR WESTERN is simply a wonderful comic book.
