Take the classic stances and scenes from "The Rifleman", mix it up with snappy dialogue and western banter provided by Gray and Palmiotti that only "UNFORGIVEN" can provide, and throw in GREAT art from Luke Ross and you've got a recipe for a comic book that can truly stand alone as one of the best single issue reads out there.
This is what's great about this title. Most of the first few issues are stand-alone, so if you haven't read any Jonah Hex stories up until this point, you don't need to. You only need to know 3 things:
He's got one ugly face.
He's the meanest cuss in the Old West.
He's packing heat.
Seriously, this is a terrific book. The story was simple and straight-forward, and the art was clean. BUT BE WARNED: Once you buy this book, you will HAVE to have #2.
