Gina standing up to Jonah Hex was great as it keeps her from being the standard gritty superhero girlfriend just taking the abuse of her put upon lover. The interaction between John Constantine and Jonah Hex was great and ended in a way in which many heroes wish their time with John Constantine would end.
Anyone who reads my reviews knows how much I like good cover art and this issue has some lackluster cover art. It isn't terrible, but it doesn't stand out from an average panel in the book. The introduction of the Black Mercy was odd as I thought it was a Justice League Unlimited plot device and not DCU canon. Also the push to return home by Hex seems to have come from nowhere, almost as if the writers want him to get home before the book is canceled.
With a cover that doesn't grab your attention, this book doesn't offer much to get excited about. The thought of a western taking place in the modern age is interesting, but this book doesn't live up to that idea at all. It is less a western and more of a typical DCU comic book. Unless you are a big Jonah Hex fan I suggest skipping this book. Your money would be better spent on picking up one of the many Forever Evil tie ins.
