A Few Good Points to an Otherwise Average Issue
'The Holdout', the story in issue 10 of Jonah Hex feels like a bit of a filler issue. It's pretty much an average western that happens to star Hex.
There's new fill-in artists too, and the art seems to be inferior to past issues, though it isn't outright bad.
Hex exposes a card-sharp, named Preston, who gets his revenge by having his goons tie hex up while he smashes Hex's hands with a sledge hammer. Preston then leaves for Abilene, but vows to kill Hex if he's still in town three weeks later.
Hex, however, comes up with a way to protect himself without being able to draw his sixguns.
The issue also features the return of Joanna from Jonah Hex #4.
Other than that, though, it's an average western, averagely illustrated.
