DCU Spotlight: All-Star Western

We mentioned before that Jonah Hex will be setting up shop in Gotham City of the past come this September, but now info is starting to release about the series. First up, The Source posted up an image showing a very different Gotham City than we are used too.

In addition to that image, Comic Book Resources posted an interview with the writers of the series, Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, about some of the things we can expect for the series. One questions stuck out from the rest since it referred to a bit of The Batman Universe.


CBR: I know you can't share too much about specific plot points, but from the teaser solicitation, Jonah Hex is operating out of Gotham and he may or may not be collaborating with Amadeus Arkham on solving some cases. We know Jonah Hex and what he brings to the table, but what can you tell us about Arkham? Will the two be working together on cases like Holmes and Watson? And how is this character linked to the Amadeus Arkham that Grant Morrison introduced in "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth?"


Justin Gray: September is down the road, and we're still focused on making the last two issues of "Jonah Hex" as good as they can be. I can tell you that the pairing of Hex and Arkham is both absurd and yet makes perfect sense. We asked ourselves, what happens when a psychologist and a sociopath have to work together?


Jimmy Palmiotti: It's going to be something you haven't seen before and at the same time, be as natural as anything. For the new readers, it's going to be exciting, and for the older fans, we are not going to miss a beat staying loyal to who Jonah really is. So far, it's been a blast.


So All-Star Western may be a comic to watch especially if they dive into some of the history of Gotham City. All-Star Western #1 hits stores this September.
