This standalone graphic novel delves deeply into Hex’s past and revolves around him meeting up with his mother and step brother.  The story is well written and engaging and the baddies are well crafted to be really nasty.  Hex plays out his gruff no compromise self well. The artwork is good and appropriate to the content which is violent in a true Hex fashion.  I think this book should appeal to Hex and spaghetti western fans alike. ISBN-10: 1401225500. ISBN-13: 978-1401225506. 7/10.

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.
