Nearing Completion

My collecting of the Vertigo Jonah Hex books just took one step closer to completion. I know that I can get the books I need on ebay, but I hate paying for a book and then paying the same amount for shipping, I was in Sugarhouse, Ut at Black Cat Comics and they had Jonah Hex: Shadows West #2! I bought it.

Then I made the mistake of reading it. Dear Lord in heaven, th ethings I go through for you people! Shadows West #1 was the only book I ever bought & returned to the store & allowed them to keep my money just to teach me a lesson. #2 was actually worse!!!

But, I have to get through HEX, then Two-Gun Mojo, then Riders of the Worm (urf!).

On the up side, we are supposed to be getting a Jonah Hex movie trailer on the 29th on Sci-Fi.

Once funny
Twice Silly
Third time deserves a smack

I liked the Vertigo Jonah Hex issues as well as many (though not all) of the "Hex" issues.

To each his own!

Timothy Truman is one of my favorite artists (I like Grimjack and Scout), and generally I really liked what he did with Vertigo JH. Joe Landsdale is a hack. I agree with DAZA- the first was fun. The second and third (especially) sucked.

The first Vertigo Hex book which I think was Two-Gun Mojo, was a hoot. The next one, with the worms, was...a little weird.

Two-Gun Mojo was a good idea. Zombies in the Old West. And it was done fairly well.

Riders of the Worm? Looks like it tried to capitalize on the movie Tremors. Then it got just plain disgusting.

Shadows West? Somebody had naked photos of DC management for that to see print.

But I will read them all and report back, just for you ... My loyal fans

I remember enjoying them at the time, but now...hmm. Loved Guns of the Dragon though, with Bat Lash and Enemy Ace.
