Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I remember as soon as Blackest Night started, I thought "they should have Black Lantern Jonah Hex and Sgt Rock at some point."  Look’s like we’ll get half of that.  Too bad I’m not getting this =

  2. Didio is a mostly solid writer, looking forward to it.

  3. Totally called a Zombie Hex. Let’s see if DiDio delivers.

  4. @kingyouth412: how could he not?

  5. When I was a kid I would LOVE it when I saw a Scalphunter or other western on the spinner rack because they were so rarely there.  Can’t wait for this one…

  6. i’m tempted to pick this up… don’t know about didio or the artist though.

  7. This would have been great… if I knew who any of the main protagonists were! 3/5 for me. Not bad, but just an exercise in boredom. Black Lantern Hex has one of the best moments in Blackest Night though.

  8. This goes to show us why they do tie-in books. The issue was a below average book that has substantially more pulls than Jonah Hex, which has some of the best storytelling in comics.

    Not to mention, but I will, the book has no "significance" to the overall event of Blackest Night.

    Nevertheless, Black Lantern Hex was cool . . . hahaha

  9. It was ok. Enjoyed Black Hex although if you ask me it would have been cooler to see a Red Hex, he’s an angry and bitter person so it would have been interesting to see a red ring bring him back to life.

  10. I’m glad to see most people liked this, but I found DiDio’s writing to be amateurish and the dialogue relatively insipid.  He sure loves his exclamation points.  "OH, LORD!  The wall!  It exploded! It can’t be! We were supposed to be safe here!"

    Suicide Squad was by far the better crossover of the two "series revivals" this week.
