Comic Book A Day – Day 59 – All-Star Western #0 (2012)

All Star Western 0 review

“Say “Hello” to my little friend!”

As with all the Zero issues DC put out last month All-Star Western gives an origin story about an important character associated with the title. ¬†Of course for All-Star Western it’s John Hex.

Hex has had several different incarnations over the years, including his time travel back to the future run in the 80′s which I really enjoyed.

Here writers Palmiotti and Gray give brief snippets from Hex’s life starting the day he was born and ending with how he got his facial scars.

All-Star Western has been a consistently good read and the fact that it’s tied into the Batman family of books (it takes place in 1860′s Gotham) makes it even more interesting to me.

 

The dialogue, characters and art make this series and specifically this book a definite addition to your pull list (which still sounds dirty to me).

I’m giving All-Star Western #0 (2012) 5 out of 6 possible Aarons!

Dibbling out of my cheek,
