Face Full of Violence Collects Jonah Hex Issues #1 to #6 . Jonah Hex is a grotesquely deformed bounty hunter roaming the nineteenth-century West.  The setting has a classic western feel to it with Jonah having a more than a passing resemblance to Clint Eastwood’s great Western heroes.  The stories are short, easy to follow and have a strong old school western  plot line which makes them very satisfying. The artwork is spot on and has a gritty and almost epic feel to it.  I didn’t enjoy Tony DeZuniga’s  artwork in the 5th story quite as much as Luke Ross’s excellent work in the other episodes but this is more a reflection on what an excellent job Ross does rather than a slur on DeZuniga artistic talent. This is a great book for fans of the Western Genre and good value too. [ISBN-13: 978-1401210953]. 8/10.
