Format: Paperback
The stories from issues #13-16 of DC Comics' New 52 series All Star Western are collected, along with issue #0, as All-Star Western Volume 3: The Black Diamond Probability TP (The New 52) (All Star Western Featuring Jonah Hex). This features the adventures of Jonah Hex in the Gotham City of the 1870s, where he is teamed up with Dr Amadeus Arkham, pioneer criminal psychologist, to investigate various crimes that have brought them together. This is another superb volume in this new series, which features excellent scripting and incredible (though stylised) artwork. Even the backup features - starring a revised Tomahawk in this collection - have excellent scripting and artwork. I am pleasantly surprised that DC are devoting such high-quality resources to what was once a fairly minor (if very popular) character and genre, and more so that the series is now up to volume five.

The main story sees Haly's Circus in town, and its travelling medicine show has a new formula for its products, courtesy of a certain Doctor Jekyll. Gotham is soon overrun with murderous clowns and hyped-up strongmen, who only a bullet through the head can stop. None of that namby-pamby we must not kill when Jonah Hex is in town and hired to find the formula for its original owner, who has sent a certain Mr Hyde to collect it. The Barbary Ghost is also in town, looking for her mother, who was travelling with the circus. It really is an All-Star Western this time out.

Issue #0 is the life story of Jonah Hex - which manages to keep in synch with most if not all of the original Michael Fleischer version, in spirit if not in actual narrative flow.

Strong series 16 April 2014
By J. Hundley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like this new, rebooted All Star Western series. Bringing Jonah Hex to 1870s-era Gotham was a great idea and as the series unfolds, they are keeping it interesting and entertaining. The Hex - Arkham pairing was great fun, and Hex as fish-out-of-water in the "big city" presents a lot a fodder for its continued success. I recommend you start with Vol. 1, if you are new to this, but if you have already enjoyed 1 & 2 and want to see about 3, then here you go: You'll want this one, too.

Docked 1/2 start for the absurdly silly-assed costumes all of the female characters are put into. I mean, jeez, really? Some of your readers are not slobbery little boys (or their overgrown counterparts).
Spoiler-Free Review 12 Feb. 2015
By Zac Hanscom - Published on
Format: Paperback
All Star Western, Vol. 3: The Black Diamond Probability is in three parts. It starts off with All Star Western #0, a Jonah Hex origin story taking place from 1830 or 1840 until the 1880s which is by far the highlight of the collection. It then goes on to a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. Someone has stolen Dr. Jekyll's formula and is selling it around Gotham. It's up to Jonah Hex and Dr. Arkham to stop them. The collection ends with a story about Tomahawk, a Native-American warrior fighting the evil Americans, culled from issues #13 through #16.

This book is readable and fun all the way through, but it only is truly great in a few spots, notably the origin story and Jonah Hex's interplay with Dr. Arkham's mother. My only real complaint is that there isn't enough of Dr. Arkham in the book, as he's one of my favorite characters, and the back-and-forth with him and Hex is always memorable. I was also a little disappointed in how little the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde angle was handled; his/their scenes are mostly fight sequences. ****1/2
If you aren't reading All Star Westerns, you need to be! 2 Oct. 2015
By Josh Matheny - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It seems every writer needs to explore the Dr Jekyl/Mr Hyde scenario. I'm not so sure what's appealing about it to writers, but as a reader it's sort of cliche and I'm rather bored of it.

That being said, this book didn't really touch on the literary aspect of the character/villain, and rather made him a large, intimidating, and intellectual villain. Sort of like Bane, and I liked it. I liked it a lot.

You don't need to read Volumes 1 or 2 to get into this, just know that Hex is working with Dr Arkham and Tallullah Black is in this for a few issues. Where she goes off to, I don't know yet. Hopefully it's in more issues later in the series.

Either way, this is a great Western, solid book. I thought I would be bored to tears when Hex had his legs broken but honestly, it was absolutely wonderful read to know more about Arkham's home. Even to have Hex flirt with the nurse? Classic.
All-Star Western Keeps Getting Better 7 Nov. 2014
By Charlie Brooks - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All-Star Western continues to be one of the best books in the New 52 lineup with this volume. This time around, we get Jonah Hex taking on Mr. Hyde of Robert Louis Stevenson fame, and it works really well. We get some fascinating character scenes out of Hex as well, especially as we see his reaction to being temporarily crippled by Hyde.

This volume also gives us Jonah Hex's origin story, which stays pretty true to previous tellings of the tale. If you aren't familiar with Hex's past, though, this is a great one-issue recap that will give you new insight to the character.

My only objection here is that my new favorite character in this book, Tallulah Black, leaves about halfway through. But, alas, it's not her story. It's Hex's, and the tale that gets told about him is a great one.
Other than the 0 issue not that interesting 12 Oct. 2015
By Harjinder S. Parmar - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The writing and art are still great, but they still don't do anything interesting with the characters. Maybe I'm just biased towards long story arcs, but I just don't find stories with nothing significant happening all that interesting to read. This issue has a 0 issue, I fell they should have just made a Jonah Hex Origin story arc instead of a single issue. Again the writing and art are still great I plan to get the next volume, which is going to have Booster Gold and Stormwatch, so the next volume should be interesting.
