The final week of DC’s relaunch number 1’s Sorry for the delay, It was a busy week last week.  It was my birthday, and the finally of Doctor Who needed watching, plus playoff Baseball and College Football, I was  pretty busy.

JONAH HEX #56 Story: Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti Art Phil Winslade, C.P. Smith and others Cover: Darwyn Cooke Publisher: DC Comics If the movie can only be this good… Of course it won’t be. This is a book I thought about getting for a while, and with all the promotion surrounding the movie, I figured I’d check it out.  I love Justin and Jimmy’s work on Power Girl and I also really liked most of their miniseries over at IDW, The Last Resort, so I don’t really have a good reason as to why Jonah Hex is not in … Continue reading
