Plus: Being trained by a samurai in the desert might have been a strange beginning for a cowgirl vigilante, but Nighthawk and Cinnamon are in for an even stranger twist as they search for a way out of this trap!

  1. Anarchists? Nighthawk and Cinnamon (judging by the cover, I’d guess those were stripper assassins)? Wow, this book got interesting quick as soon as I stopped reading it.

  2. why can’t they go back to one-shot stories like the old days?!

  3. Being trained in the desert by a samurai IS strange. Can’t wait to see how the guys make that work.

  4. I think I’m dropping this series after this issue. Sad to see it go but I’m just not as excited to read this as other books and I also have to make room for new books next month.

  5. Palmiotti & Gray and Moritat have put on a wonderful show since issue #1. The backups have been stellar as well. Still excited for this series after 7 issues.

    • Agreed. One of my favorite books that I look forward to each month. Was worried about the back-ups, but have loved each one so far!

  6. This is the first issue that I’ve liked Arkham. The scene of him headshrinking a monstrous oaf was very funny. The art was particularly good this issue as well. I can’t get enough of Hex. He has the best lines. I actually, for real, lol. He’s the surliest, meanest, cold hearted, son of a bitch, around. His fight with ZC is just plain gorgeous to look at. You should pull this issue if haven’t yet. Its fantastic.

  7. This was a crazy issue. From the blonde assassin to Arkham smoking opium it was a roller coaster ride. Definitely the best issue of this series since #4 (which was also my POTW). Also, the back up is pretty damn good looking. I’m too lazy to spell the artist’s name (sorry ‘guy’) but his Gary Frank-like pencils really stood out to me.

    5/5 (POTW)

  8. A return to form 🙂

  9. Amadeus Arkham smoking opium like a pimp!
