All Star Western Cancelled By DC Comics (OR NOT - UPDATE)

ALLSW_Cv31

Along with the news of 3D Covers for a Five Years Later event in September 2014  also announced at ComicsPRO was the cancellation of All Star Western.

The Jonah Hex series by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray was unique in the English speaking comics industry as an ongoing western comic book, although it also managed to crossover with the current New 52 DC Comics quite a bit, considering. Showing an early Gotham, and pairing Hex with the founder of Arkham Asylum, the comic created an odd couple Western, as well as exploring other characters of the Wild West.

Its sales had been slipping however, and even an appearance with Superman as Hex travelled to modern day Metropolis couldn’t save the book it seems. But with issue 31 out in May, the comic made a damn good stab at it…

UPDATE: Or Not… despite this coming from retailers at the show, being talked to by DC folks, this came down the wire.

So it may not be officially cancelled at any road.

I understand the creative team are already working on issue 34 as we speak. And what may be more noteworthy is that this week was Palmiotti and Gray’s hundredth Jonah Hex comic … whatever happens, congrats guys!
