I can't wait for the next volume to be released.

Dedicated fans will recognize the Terrence Thirteen name from the Phantom Stranger comics and this is a pretty nice send-up of the character's backstory.

Before the New 52, I knew a little of Jonah Hex. But after reading All Star Western Vol. 1: Guns and Gotham (The New 52), I immediately loved it and went out and picked up post-52 Jonah Hex trade paperbacks by writer Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray and I see why this is such a great character under these men. Volume 2 of All Star Western continues the great adventures of Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham as they travel to Louisiana and back to Gotham City.

ALL STAR WESTERN VOL.2: THE WAR OF LORDS AND OWLS collects issues #7-12 and is divided into two stories. Issues #7-9 deal with Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham following Thurston Moody (from volume 1) escaping Gotham to Louisiana, to find and help two local crime heroes Nighthawk & Cinnamon fight off the cities own crime syndicate known as the August 7, while Hex looks for Moody. Issues #10-12 is the 3-part story, "The War of Lords and Owls", as Hex and Arkham find that the crime syndicates for Gotham City has The Court of Owls and the Crime Bible have been at war for control over Gotham for some time, put the fight for power looks like things are going to change.

Writers Palmiotti and Gray up the excitement with having the two different stories in two different locations to give volume 2 a faster pace about then before, as well as continuing the dichotomy of the Clint Eastwood like Jonah Hex and the comedic side of Amadeus Arkham is still pitch perfect. The Louisiana story of Hex infiltrating a battle arena and fighting a lady assassin is downright cool, while Arkham goes to jail is humorous.

Even Jonah Hex can't escape the diabolical clutches of the Court of Owls. The bounty hunter finds himself facing the scourge of the Batman Family within the pages of "All Star Western Volume 2: War of Lords and Owls." He can't escape his fate and ends up confronting the crooked upper crust of whatever new town he rides into.

Kidnapper Thurston Moody has fled to New Orleans and gun-for-hire Jonah Hex is hot on his trail. While there, he uncovers a sinister plot to eliminate the immigrant population. He joins forces with crime fighters Nighthawk and Cinnamon to take on the August Seven group who are behind the murderous plans. Hex then finds himself led back to Gotham City to help Dr. Amadeus Arkham and the good citizens go up against a secret society known as the Court of Owls.

Writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray continue throwing their beloved bounty hunter into the middle of trouble and leaving him to get out. The way they incorporate Amadeus Arkham and the Court of Owls into the storyline is brilliant and no doubt pulls in new readers who would never give All-Star Western or Jonah Hex a chance without planting them firmly in the center of the Dark Knight's hometown.

Moritat continues his run as artist for the issues collected in "All Star Western Volume 2: War of Lords and Owls." He doesn't stray from his usual style and adequately lends visual splendor to Palmiotti and Gray's script. His work definitely stands out from other artists of today.

Three backup stories are included in this collection. Nighthawk and Cinnamon, Bat Lash, and Dr. Terrence Thirteen all get to see some action in short yarns spun by Palmiotti and Gray. Artwork is handled by Patrick Scherberger, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, and Scott Kolins, respectively.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In volume two of All-Star Western, Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham head down to New Orleans before returning to Gotham in their gun-slinging adventures. While the first volume was solid, this one is really excellent thanks in large part to the introduction of a new character, Tallulah Black. Tallulah is an old friend and lover of Jonah Hex, and her personality makes a perfect addition to the book.

The first volume of this comic was establishing the setting and the core concepts. This volume is where the characters really come into their own and get a chance to shine. Even the backup stories are excellent and build on the supporting cast. As a whole, this is the point where All-Star Western becomes one of the best series in DC's New 52 universe.

Couldn't resist picking up the second volume of All-Star Western from DC's New 52 lineup. The first volume was just too good to easily walk away from, and now I'm waiting on the release of the third volume.

This series just continues to improve, adding layers and nuances of character, growing the characters and the conflicts within Gotham, and touching on more and more of the history that evidently led to the villains that parade around Gotham in the present day.

The first arc continues the loose end left from Guns and Gotham, the first volume, and it dips a little more into the superhero genre. Nighthawk and Cinnamon, both masked vigilantes, are somewhat different than I remember them, especially with the magic necklaces that throws the element of the supernatural into Jonah Hex's world. Then there's the addition of Talon, one of the members of the Council of Owls group that's currently plaguing Batman. I haven't read those books, so I'm not certain what that's all about at the moment, but I'm definitely more curious.

The New Orleans backdrop to the story is awesome. I went back and looked through the panels again. Moritat's art is so detailed and so atmospheric I just wanted to see more of the city, but I'm also relishing his rendition of Gotham as well, so it's a trade-off to me, and either way I'm a winner!

The first arc has some nice twists in it, and Amadeus Arkham continues to bring an element of levity that was never in the original Jonah Hex series. I believed it would have been out of place until I saw how much Amadeus brings to the stories. The tales just wouldn't be the same without him and his long-suffering partnership with Hex.
