I love Jonah Hex!

Only the Good Die Young compiles issues 19 through 24 of the second (modern) run of the Jonah Hex title. As a fan of the origin series, I find that the more recent Jonah Hex tales have a hard time living up to the first series, but in this volume there are some decent attempts.

The story-lines Texas Money and Unfinished Business are good examples that manage to capture the feel of the old series, including Jonah's habit of playing both sides. Who Lives and Who Dies is the best of the bunch, with
Bernet's issues - great, Noto - bad

Übervägivaldne spagettivestern jätkub, peaosas endiselt napisõnaline põletatud ja moonutatud näoga antikangelane. Nagu ikka, 6 lugu, üks vägivaldsme kui teine. Mulle Jordi Bernet'i stiil kunstnikest ehk enim meeldib kuigi seal on teisigi üliilusaid töid. Bernet algul meeldis, siis vahepeal ei meeldinud, tundus lapsik, ja nüüd jälle väga meeldib. Eriti hästi oskab ta joonistada indiaanlasi ja skalpeerimist...:)

Jonah Hex is a bounty hunter operating in the Wild West and when I was say Wild West one should emphasize wild.  It seems each volume in the Jonah Hex gets a little darker.  I didn’t particularly enjoy this volume as much.  There was too much references to saloons and what comes with it.

Bad ass. Like reading a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western on crack.

No matter how solid storytelling this was or how good the art was, this edition of Hex just wasn't the best.

Jonah är fortfarande kungen, men denna gången håller handlingen inte ihop på ett tillräckligt bra sätt. Berättelserna är helt enkelt inte lika bra som i de andra delarna.

Always solid, always good. Not the best stories in this volume, but nothing to take away from my enjoyment.

What I learned from this book and every other part of the Jonah Hex series: this is an incredibly awesome comic. The end.
