    One thought on “All-Star Western, Volume 2: The War of Lords and Owls”

    1. I hated the art for the majority of this volume.HATED IT!I know that some of you love this style, and I totally respect your opinions, but to me, this lookedzy.I know, I know. It looks that way on purpose.But I still don't like it.It's like the artist just didn't give a shit about drawing any detail on the faces, or something.To me, that's not visually pleasing, but I understand that a lot of you guys really enjoyed it.It's just not my thing. Sorry.The story was ok, but I think you need to be a [...]

    2. I don't necessarily love the need to tie this title into the DC universe as a whole but this was a good volume. 3.5 stars rounded up.

    3. Another solid instalment of the All Star Western title. This picks up right after volume 1 ends. Hex and Arkham are in pursuit of Thurston Moody who fled Gotham for New Orleans after his child labour ring was exposed. I was hoping that we would see some Wild West antics on Hex's journey to New Orleans. Unfortunately this book begins just as they arrive. One day we might see the old west, I hope. Aside from that little niggle this book is an entertaining read. We are introduced to Tallulah Black, [...]

    4. This volume of All Star Western continues with the high octane western action. Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham have tracked their missing fugitive to New Orleans, where they encounter vice to rival that of Gotham, and a conspiracy to murder immigrants ran by a group of white supremacists. Jonah goes undercover in the fight ring and captures the interest of a beautiful fighter who also works for the xenophobic group. They team up with a pair of vigilantes and lovers called Nighthawk and Cinnamon, wh [...]

    5. Maybe i'm giving this a rating that is a little high, but I find myself being entertained by the buddy "cop" tale of Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham. In sticking with the series I had doubts that putting Hex in late 19th century Gotham City would work, and about going for the longer story lines.It is working, even the slightly forced inclusion of the then Owls story line and crossover in the Batman Family of titles. Hex and Arkham make their way down to New Orleans in pursuit of the previous TPB's [...]

    6. westerns may not be the best loved genre in comics today, but Palmiotti and Gray, as always, bring a modernist feel to the Old West (although this take place in Gotham City -- is it in the Midwest in the New 52?). Great art by Moritat moves this volume along each and every time. It's fantastic. Get it.

    7. At some point, it stops being a "western" comic if every issue takes place in Gotham City. It was fun having Tallulah Black back in the book though.

    8. Tym razem starcie z underdwellers (lepiej motyw pasuje do XIX wieku niż czasów współczesnych), wyznawcami Biblii Przestępstwa oraz samym Trybunałem Sów. Westernowi mściciele wypadli kiczowato.

    9. This second volume of All-Star Western isn't really very well named - it's hardly a war between the Court of Owls and the Crime Bible followers as a mild altercation that Jonah and his friends find themselves in. It's still an enjoyable story, though I prefer the first half of the volume which sees Hex team up with Nighthawk and Cinammon to try to defeat a band of immigrant hating villains known as the August 7. I still find it hard to empathise with Hex as a hero, considering he's a surly old s [...]

    10. Some of this book deserves 2 stars and some deserves 4 stars, so it averages to 3. I enjoy this title more than I thought I would. The art is both pleasing and offputting, which is not a useful statement I know: someone else said it is too stylized, and I suppose that's as close as I can get to how I feel. Plots are sometimes too easy, and the "War" is negligible. Shorts in the back provide a nice change of pace - they might have been better interspersed in the volume. I also get the feeling the [...]

    11. Frankly the Jonah Hex story was too long and convoluted for my taste [and for Jonah's apparently]. The Nighthawk origin floated like a lead balloon. These writers think so highly of their mistaken views on theology they put their words in the characters with the most going for them- giving weight to viewpoints that are not worth the paper they are printed on just give a good story- adding faulty theology just shows a lack of preparation or morality.

    12. I love the character of Jonah Hex but these stories that tie into the Batman mythos is a downer for me. I actually enjoyed the three back up stories better than the main story which are Nighthawk & Cinnamon, Bat Lash and Dr. 13. The Bat Lash story was my favorite mostly due to the art which was expertly drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez.

    13. Westerny moc nemusím a tak som do tohoto išiel bez očakávaní. Meno Jonah Hex mi je povedomé, aj keď neviem odkiaľ. Celkovo má to prekvapilo sledovať Batmanov svet z doby divokého západu. Gotham, doktor Arkham, soví tribunál, maskovaní mstitelia, dokonca pán Wayne, Coblepot a niektorí Strážnici od polície.

    14. One of the odder characters from the old DC UniverseJonah Hexis a veteran of the Civil Warfighting for the Confederacy.He becomes markednot just with the scar that ishalf his facebut by supernatural forces.Hex finds that a particular sortof magical mayhem is always drawn to him.This series is no different.In Gotham City of the 1880sHex becomes embroiled in all kinds of lunacy that he wants no part of.While really quite grim and darkthis book is also exciting and uniquely fresh.An odd notion conc [...]

    15. All Star Western Equals All Star ReadingIt’s a book I never thought would catch my attention, much less become one of my favourites.It’s a western. It’s a gritty western. It’s a gritty western living in the DC Universe.And all those factors help make All Star Western a great comic, an anthology showcasing the amazing talents of creators Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, and a corner of the DCU that is edgier then most.All Star Western, this current version, was born out of DC Comics The N [...]

    16. Jonah Hex is a western character. Having the stories set in cities, specifically Gotham, diminish this, in my opinion.This is the second volume of Jonah Hex in the new 52 series, and the intent is to set up the background for today's Gotham by introducing ancestors of Bruce Wayne and the Penguin among others. Jonah Hex is a good vehicle to do this, from a timeline perspective, but I think that this is a bit misplaced. I didn't mind the first volume, but this is now dragging on.I did like bringin [...]

    17. This series must be under-rated; I never hear anything about it, but it's always consistently entertaining. Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham as a buddy cop team in the old west. It sounds awful, but Gray and Palmiotti have the best handle of Jonah Hex of any writers, and they're in top form here. They even manage to work the crossover event 'Court of Owls' not only work but feel vital, and on top of that they stage the court against the Brotherhood of Crime, pitting two secret societies, with Hex an [...]

    18. I liked the Jonah Hex stories better than the backup tales featuring other characters. The artists on the book are the former team from Richard Starkings' ELEPHANTMEN. I really like the sequential art, the story reminds of a mash up between Jordi Benet meets Amanda Conner.I'll take what I can get, but I am a tiny bit disappointed the backdrop is no longer a straight-up western setting in the traditional sense. Instead the stories take place in a non-British speaking Sherlock Holmes type setting. [...]

    19. Jonah Hex fait encore une fois équipe avec Amadeus Arkham pour retrouver le kidnappeur qu'ils recherchaient dans le premier tome. Ils se retrouveront pris entre deux gang qui se font la guerre : Court of Owls et followers of the Crime Bibles.Il y a une histoire qui raconte les origines de Nighthawk et Cinnamon, une troisième avec Bat lash et la dernière avec Dr. Terrence 13.L'histoire avec Johah Hex occupe 75% de la BD et elle est la meilleure. Ce roman graphique ne convient pas à de jeunes [...]

    20. Good story arcs. I like the main characters of Jonah Hex and Dr. Arkham, and adding Tallulah Black in the mix. Incorporating the Court of Owls and followers of the Crime Bible who show up much later in the DCU is smart, but I could tell it was added primarily due to editorial mandate of the Court crossover event. The backups collected in this volume did not add much for me. Settings include New Orleans and Gotham. Now do either of those count as the West, or does "All Star Western" imply the typ [...]

    21. You would never think a western comic would be a must read in the New 52, but this is! It is amazing. Simply this is an awesome series, that is really well written and has extremely strong art. Also you have to love how the DC universe still feels like the DC universe, even back in the 1800's. The writing and story is great & from now on I always read anything by these two writers. This seals it.

    22. On the plus side this volume pretty much sticks with one character / story line. It is a continuation of the Jonah Hex story from the first volume. Hex travels from Goth to New Orleans and back again not so much doing good as fighting and killing people who try to stop him from claiming his bounty. Of course there is always time to sleep with a bad woman or two along the way.I cant say I like Jonah Hex but I do like the historical Gotham.

    23. I liked these stories more than the ones in the previous trade, but many of the same problems linger here. I enjoyed the back-up stories more than the main event, with the possible exception of Hex versus the racist bungholes, which is always a good time.The inclusion of the Court of Owls has editorial mandate written all over it and is over mercifully quickly.

    24. Surprisingly really like the All Star Western series. I particularly liked the issue where they explained the backgrounds of Nighthawk and Cinnamon during a scuffle. The art style in this series is also very unique to the story, as it has a gritty western feel to it.

    25. More rip-roaring adventure with Jonah Hex plus backup stories. Still weird to see Hex spending so much time in Gotham as opposed to the western states. The characters are fun, though, and the action never falters. I'll have to keep my eye out for Vol. 3 of this series

    26. I feel like I probably am putting two much pressure on this title. I really want to love it, but I am just finding it okayd I really want the concept to be some awesome.Maybe it's just too stylized for my tastes?

    27. Excellent series bringing back some of the old Western characters. Chuck in a bit of retcon on the building of Gotham City, which is fun to see the past of the families who will play in a part in the future. Great to see Talluah Black back. A definite read if you can get your hands on it.

    28. Vol 2 proves to be as fun as the first, but with the same exact problem at the end--the side stories kill the momentum a bit. Not sure how they could have integrated them more efficiently. But the art and writing remain strong.On to Vol 3!
