I can't claim to be Jonah Hex fan.
Zack Davisson
I never give away too much in a novel because it will spoil the story for those who intend to read this book.
Joseph J. Truncale
One of the best graphic novels I've ever read.

MINOR Spoilers:

Judging from DC Comics' synopsis of this book, I was expecting a full re-telling of Hex's origin, but that is not the case, here, which is GOOD, because this writing team already told that story (in the "Origins" trade). This one does dive into his past a bit more, but instead of focusing on his abusive father as much, his dying mother is the focus, along with Hex learning for the first time that he has a half brother. It's interesting to see Hex through his brother's eyes, who shares Hex's blood, but is on a completely different path as a preacher.

The book is good, and any recent Hex fan, like myself, will enjoy the story, for sure. However, the art is not for everyone. DeZuniga is Jonah Hex's co-creator and original artist, but I was never a fan of his work, personally. It's too "sketchy" for my taste. Some of his closeups are fantastic, though. So he's quite talented, but for the most part, I'm not a fan. Check out DC Comics' June 3rd post on their blog, The Source for a preview.

Bottom Line: Although I'm not crazy about the art, the writing is still great, and if you're a fan, you should have this in your collection.

Good story but what has happened to the art? We seem to have gone backwards from the 1970's WEIRD WESTERN TALES to almost a sketchpad rendering of the characters. Give me the old days when they tried to make things look realistic. Still enjoyed the story though.

The Story telling is Okay, The Art has some to be desired. Over All it's an alright book if your a Hex fan or just want to see what Hex is all about. This book is a little slow, and not too much gets accomplished. I wish I could say better things for it, but it's not exceptional in any way. Then again, if you can get this for a low price, pick it up you'll probably enjoy it some.

The `return' of Tony De Zuniga to Jonah Hex is remarkable. Not only has Jonah Hex hit the big screen, but also with that exposure, Hex has developed a significant following too! Hollywood has buzzed with the casting, the story, and the buzz that the heroine created with her portrayal of the love interest.
That brings us to No Way Back. Continuing Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti's run on our anti-hero, they have given readers a back story that is very compelling (and dark too). We have all wondered why Jonah is why he is, now we know. An abusive father, and an abandonment by his mother, will create a certain bitterness in anyone. Add the tomahawk to his face, and the process is complete.

They say that our eyes mirror our souls, and our demeanor reveals our inner `sense'. Jonah Hex is clearly a troubled man. His brother, Joshua Dazzleby, raised by his mother AFTER her abandonment of Jonah, has turned to the Lord for comfort. Both preacher and lawman, he rules Heavens' Gate with grace and strength. Jonah, while bringing the body of his mother for burial, unsettles the town yet prepared them for El Papagayo and his revenge against Jonah Hex's father. This time, the sins of the father are revisited upon the children and those around them. How will Jonah prepare the citizens of peaceful Heaven's Gate for the murderers? Is Hex blood thicker than water?
Firstly, I am pleased to finally learn who Jonah is , and how he became this way. Secondly, the art of Mr DeZuniga (for 140 pages) is awesome! Storywise, Gray and Palmiotti are consistant, yet portray a Hex that Mr Fleischer was unable to in his day. Our version of Hex is that of a man ruled by passions, temptations, and bounties. This is a violent book. This is a disturbing book in many ways.

Format: Hardcover
Well this certainly is not a comic for kids. Any regular reader of Jonah Hex already expects grim and grueling grittiness to come with the barren territory. However this original graphic novel may be the most brutal of all. There are no happy trails to be found here, with this book showcasing the one fundamental and uncompromising characteristic most Westerns revolve around, lawlessness. With little fear of reprisal, men are exceedingly cruel and ruthlessly unforgiving, with women and children given no quarter. Indeed a young Jonah and his mother greatly illustrate this exact point. Due to his violently abusive father, she had deserted both as a child, and as the story begins we find him trying to find her, given that she now is apparently wanted for murder. This leads to an awkward yet poignant reunion and the surprising discovery of a half-brother, whose more conventional and favorable upbringing has allowed for a much different life's path. Of course things have a way of rapidly going south once Jonah hits the scene. Little do we know at the time the dastardly role played by one of Hex's constant antagonists El Papagayo, who has a long standing feud with any member of the Hex family due to Jonah's despicable dad, all setting the stage for a finale that may determine the fate and lives of an entire town and its people. Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray's story and overall writing is stirring as usual, with the extra length afforded them being quite beneficial for further development of the plot and players. While Tony DeZuniga's pencils are rough and sketchy, they do properly fit the story's ominous tone. This book was published to coincide with the Jonah Hex movie being released this month, with the two projects together hopefully acquainting this charismatic cur to a much broader audience. No Way Back has admirably succeeded in its part.
