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.

Jonah Hex: No Way Back was written as a way to coincide with the release of the subpar film version of the character. Justin Gray and Palmiotti wrote this and art duties were handled by Tony DeZuniga. In this outing, a bounty has been placed upon Jonah’s mother. His mother’s past is recounted through flashback sequences. A Hispanic man, leader of a band of outlaws, also wants revenge on Hex because of a vendetta he has after the father of Hex murdered his entire village. Hex visits his mother, who, just before dying, reveals to Hex that he has a half brother. His brother turns out to be both a preacher and a sheriff of a town. The brothers bury their mother and defend the town from the band of outlaws who are after Hex. This is in my opinion the best Jonah Hex story that has ever been told. As an original graphic novel this can be read alone (like most Hex stories) and will make a great addition to any Jonah Hex library.

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.

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 `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.

This was a good story about a DC anti-hero that does not get the accolades he is due. Hex is a great western figure. Hard and grizzled, mean as a snake and quick to shoot. This story gives us a look into his past and we get to see what shaped this hard nosed killer. The book is not much larger than a comic but the glossy pages are nice and the cover has a great design. This was a fun read, and didn't take too long to get through.
